How do wheel spacers affect cornering and handleing in general. I was told to buy wheel spacers annd only put them on the rear for better turn in, also for really hard cornering for when the rear slids out. Is there any truth to this or will it actually hurt my handeling...I love my koni kit + eibach sways they handle awsome but I want more any other suggestions, also would azenis 615's be any good for daily driving, im running 17x7 rsv's with 215/45 i rub in the rear on really hard corners wit bumps in them i want wider tires what are my options not going taller. All advice on any of above is appreciated and taken into consideration over bs heard from people at work who drive stok cars. Thanks!

Are you saying you want to correct too much oversteer? The correct way to do that would be a smaller rear sway and possible some better tires. Wheel spacers are band-aids. Besides they almost always end up causing rubbing issues and require other smaller fixes like longer studs. There's better ways to correct these kinds of problems. Azenis are not a good daily driver tire, they are not very good at all in the wet stuff, get very stiff and slippery when temps go below 40 degrees, and will generally wear out in less than 10K miles. They are in their element on nice smooth, warm, dry roads and tend to hate everything else. The hotter the road and tire gets, the stickier the tire gets (good to a degree) but the quicker they wear out. There's lots of very good high performance street tires. They may not stick quite as good as the azenis but are close and will last a lot longer and get you through and occasional down poor without hydroplaning to you destination.
