    No alignment or any other corrections... I do tire rotation every 5000 mi ( twice so far, I’m @ 10800mi) and tires show even wear

    Front flush with fender:


    Rear 5mm in (no poke):


    And this is how I measured to determine spacer thickness:
    Rear:


    Front:


    Hope this helps

    Hm. So the front wheel hubs sit 5mm out more than the rears?

    Or perhaps rear fender arches are wider than fronts by design? I’m not sure

    This is a good video about spacers installation:

    hi there, did you have to shorten / replace the factory studs?

    So was the reason you still went for 30mm for the rears even though 35mm would have been flush simply due to it being cheaper to buy a set of 4, or was there another reason why you didn't want the rear wheels flush like the fronts?

    Also, I know it's hard to tell since they're still fairly new, but how is the quality of the spacers themselves? These ones are far cheaper than some of the more premium brands so just weary of that since a spacer failure at speed would be potentially fatal.
