    18 x 8 Wheels, Need help with Spacer

    I have a set of 18x8 Wheels in the rear, to me looks like they sit in a little too far. So i'd like to move the rear out a bit. I have 3/4" - 1" between the inner fender and the tire.

    This is for a 2002 Trans Am with Eibach Pro-Kit Springs, I just don't know what size spacer to get.

    Here are some pictures of the car

    Do you have the inner fender lips rolled?
    And your sure you have 3/4" to 1" of space between the tires and the inner fender lips,on both sides of the car?

    The fenders are not rolled...yet.

    The inner lip closest to the tire is 3/4-1" from the tire.

    In that case I would get either 3/4"(20mm) or 1"(25mm) hub spacers. Then you can roll the fender lips a little if you need too. Get hub spacers with hubcentric rings built in.

    H&R makes some good ones.

    Google "H & R hub spacers", around $150 a pair
