They are only 7" wide. I would go 20mm all around and call it a day. Besides, the 20mm bolt on, no extra work required.

So I hear a Liu of people saying it's bad for your suspension to use spacers. Is that only if I'm out rippin up the town.

I can't say, definitively, either way. But spacers do the work of purchasing a new wheel with a different offset, so negligible, if at all. As long as you're not auto-crossing it I would venture a no. There are a lot of Fofo owners on this board that run spacers to achieve a look, both lowered and un-lowered.

You stole my idea CvRyder!!!
just kidding... but seriously I almost thought nobody else had thought of it haha.

Anyways, i'm planning on doing it too. I ordered gunsmoke film from Lamin-x that blocks out 12% of light. I'm guessing you used a higher percentage? What is it?
i also ordered the tail lights vinyl (also gunsmoke - 12%).
I'm starting to wish I got the smoke (17% light block).... but i'm sure it will be fine.

cheers!

Actually I was more ghetto. I used straight black vinyl and heated it up and stretched it out until could see through it. So it's Way black. I want to use the laminx stuff though. Let me know how yours turns out
