how do i make my wheels stick out farther?

this may be a stupid question but i was just wondering how i could make my wheels stick out on the sides more. i'm not talkin a lot just like an inch or 2 so they line up perfectly with the body instead of being a lil inside

Please do not put wheel spacers on your car. They are not very safe IMO. If you are trying to have your wheels out further so you don't have that "tucked" look I would suggest looking for rims with a larger offset.

I take it you don't plan on dropping your car?

it's 1.75 in the back and about 2.75 in the front. i'm guessing it's not good to use wheel spacers with a drop?

its not good to use wheel spacers, period, drop or no drop. Not only is it completely ghetto, you are putting stress on the lug bolt more then they were designed for and your rims are in a position that the suspension was not design for. Just deal with the tire not aligning perfect, price you pay for driving a front wheel drive car.

2.75 inch drop up front? Must be GCs, right?


Buy wider rims and tires.
