Wheel Spacer Advice

Hi Folks,

I have had to fit 5mm spacers on the front of my p2 V6 due to the aftermarket alloys fouling on the calipers. Now I need some advice, do I fit 5mm spacers to the rear also and does anyone know what effect this will have on the cars handling?

Thanks in advance!

Sam

I have spacers on the front but not on the rear on my TS spider. If your new wheels fit without spacers, I wouldn't bother with them.

You won't notice any difference but it would be nice to fit on the rears as well if budget allows.

Luckily two sets were provided by previous owner of said wheels. Ive been banging on about getting Zender Siena's so long that my parents and other half clubbed together when a set came up in Poland. A couple need a refurb but they are all straight and for me the most stunning wheels.

Would fit rear and back if it was mine. I have rear/back spacers with my Zender sienas.

And hey, Congratz!
