Spacers on stock wheels

Anyone out there using spacers with the stock ES wheels? I'm looking for options and its usually easier to see a few examples before making the plunge.

I am pretty close to pulling the trigger on these...https://uniqperformance.ca/product/g...ers-15mm-pair/

Thanks for any input!

If you are going for looks then go for it! If you are going for performance then these may make it worse.

Don't get the 15mm because the stock bolts will most likely be too long and not allow your rims to sit flush with the spacers. At that point there is nothing you can do other than replacing the studs or cutting them, both being a bad idea. Go with 20mm spacers all around, it should clear fine. You have enough room on the outside to push the wheels out that far, you won't have any issues like rubbing, etc. The wheels will sit flush with fenders with 20mm spacers and will look great.

Normally I would disagree with a 35mm offset, but on a 7.5" wide wheel should be near perfect.

I know what you mean. Honestly, I am not a huge fan of big spacers, but if that's the only way to get the flush look, then it's fine as long as you get quality spacers, not some cheap ones. The op has no other choice really. Either 20mm or get 15 with replacement studs and that's a ton of work! And still won't be flush, wasted effort.

I am looking to get spacers for my ES and was looking to see if you had got your spacers and if so what size and do you have any pictures? Not really sure how big of a spacer I should go with.
