Wheel Spacers

Does anyone use them on the stock 17" wheels? Can anyone tell me the negatives of using them and the positives please? Today I noticed the wheels are tucked in a bit too much and was thinking about spacers but do not want to ruin the smooth ride or handeling of the vehicle.

I would also like to this. I was wanting to add some spacers because i felt my wheels were a little to far tucked in as well. I dont know what size spacers to get though. I have the factory 17's on my car too.

is yours lowered too or is that the stock height? i like the how they sit but is that safe? i read the thread linked above and he mentioned that you dont want to go further then 20 on the back and 15 on the front. How does yours ride? Does it rub?

Pushing the wheels out away from the suspension generally degrades those things.

No rubbing. Stock height. Have to drive a little bit more on them but haven't noticed a degradation in ride.
