Which spacers are recomended to original rear wheels?
It Looks goofy when it´s original. I want the wheels out more.

Which spacers are recommended for the original wheels?

I would not put spacers on the back.....this will change the rolling diameter and settings for the wheels which will put strain on the drive train/diff etc

I remember correctly Pomme can back this up with his diff making noises until he took the spacers off??

If you do add spacers you must work out the rolling diameter of the wheel to the fronts.... i.e. 8" rim 225/40/18 fronts to 9" rim 245/35/18 backs....this is an example don't quote me :)

I've looked into this extensively and it doesn't change the rolling diameter by purely spacing out the rear wheels. How can it? I was looking at a staggered setting for a set of wheels a friend had, and a careful mixture of correct tyre widths/heights will keep rolling radius's the same. By simply spacing the rears out my put stress on things - what I don't know.

The only way you can get the rear wheels to turn more or less than the fronts is by putting different size wheels on the front or rear, that or different size tyres ie, 35's and 40's mixture with same width or different stretches ie, 225's up front and 235's on the rear - even this last option would only slightly change the rolling radius by fractions.

If i'm wrong please correct me.

exactly as rob has said above

spacers will only affect the wheel bearings...but then so would a lower offset set of wheels :)
