Which Spacer To Use? 91 Turbo (Picture Included)

I just got my RH 3.6L wheels installed and want to push them out a little more. Should I run 5mm or 7mm? I don't want to deal with adding new studs. Who and where should I get them from?

My car is lowered and I run 225-40 up front and 285-30 in the rear. Thanks

Typically, you should be okay with 5mm spacers. The main thing is the # of threads you catch with your lug nuts.

Bernard... what up playa? How have you been? I see you are still keeping the 3.6 look in tact with the RH's.. To really tell what to do you need to provide us with a more straight on photo... from here they look good and I wouldn't push it.

If you decide to do it call WheelDynamics. I believe his name is Eli. He will be a guy who can help you. They are in CA.

Best of luck. If you supply another photo I will chime in again.

Regards,
Bryan

Hey Bryan,

Doing well thanks. Yes, always loved the look of the 94 3.6L Here are a few more pictures.

WPOZZZ, Thanks for the info.

Not the best pictures but you can see how the wheels could come out some.

still hard to see. I would say 5mm and make sure you have adequate thread purchase... don't want to end up like Ryan Dunn from Jackass with his GT3... of course he was probably anebriated and flew off the road.

The backs look fine. The fronts could use 5mm to make it flush with the fender.

Here's my 91 with Work VSXX. Rears were et 65, can't remember the front et

The off-set / backspacing of those wheels will not allow you, unless you change the studs; but then, it's too many spacers... I would explore a wider wheel outter half instead - M2c.

When you say to many spacers, what do you mean? Mine is a 91 they don't use spacers like my old 86 930.

WPOZZZ, Your car looks great, thanks for the picture.

I've got 5 mm on the front with 3.6 Turbo steering stops and nothing on the rear. Had to roll the front lips too.

BMAn, another helper... example of a 295/40 for one company may not be true for another. The actual tire width varies between manufacture. So, have him tell you tire brand as well so you can research to be sure. Especially, since you are trying to go out as far as possible. Would hate for you to purchase rubber and then have rubbing issues.

I've got Sumitomo 295-30's. They are pretty much in line with the wheel lip, which is just inside the fender edge. I don't think they could go out any further without doing some damage.

Bryan, I just installed brand new tires when the wheels were done so I wont be replacing them.

911nut, I run 285-30's and now I see why yours stick out more because of the 295 you run.

I should have the spacers by Friday and will see how it goes, if for some reason they rub I'll just remove them, not going to roll the fenders or lips.

FYI, when I had 225's up front I was running custom made 13 mm spacers and longer lugs and didn't need to roll the lips until I switched to 235's. If after you try the 5 mm spacers and if you think they aren't enough, drop me a line.
As for the rear there really is no lip to roll there so you are good to go.

I got the 5 mm spacers installed and achieved the look I was after. They filled the fenders just perfect for me.

Bernard, looking good.
Be sure to check your front tires for cuts if you didn't roll the fender lips.

Thanks. I think I'll be fine but will keep an eye on it. I drove it today and put about 30 miles on it with no problem.
