Hi all!
Im thinking of getting 20mm spacers for the back wheels on my .:R and as ive got standard wheels and setup, wondered if any 1 else has used them or 15mm, and how wide they make it look?

Post some pic's please!

Cheers Dan

Seriously, dont put them on. I really beleive they have a major effect of wearing out the rear transmission. As mine started to make noises only after i had 15mm spacers each side. And then when they were removed everything seems okay now. And from what i read on vortex people who have had problems with the rear tranmission have mainly been people who have had rear speacers or a staggered wheel set-up. Personally i didnt fancy the 3.5k risk anymore.

Yeah it has only really started to show up lately, when the rear tranny is stating to pack in. People have found the rear tranny oil to be really really dirty, so you would probably be okay if you changed the oil occasionally.

Anything over a 20mm rear spacer is ill-advised as it wreaks havoc with the haldex diff and could well break it in time. Stick to or below 20mm and the Haldex is designed to cope with this kind of difference from stock.
