Wheel Spacers

Hey, I was curious what a good offset for wheel spacers would be, I was looking to widen my stance a bit to take advantage of my body kit.

They are available from H&R in 5mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25 and 30mm offsets. What would be a good one just to make the wheels more even with the kit? Ive got a cervinis Body kit. Thanks in advance!

-Boosta

whatch out guys, when you put wheel spacers in there, it really mulitplies the torque-steer effect.

I Have the 15mm with 42offset 17's in the rear and they are even with the edge of the body, If your car is low enough you will need to think about rolling your fenders so...just a thought.
