Looking into getting wheel spacers ... 12mm or 15mm (need to measure up still) but I've read a few posts on here about vibration caused by them.

Anyone had any experience with wheel spacers? Any downsides to them?
I went with 12.5mm in the front and 25mm in the rear. From ECS:
ES#: 2863230
ES#: 1306735

I did have some vibration at first, but after rotating my tires and reseating them, it went away. Properly installed spacers wont cause vibrations on their own, but they can amplify an existing issue. If you have a very small alignment, tire wear, or unbalance issue that you cant feel, then getting spacers will make you feel them probably.



hopefully the attached pictures worked
