I will be getting lowered soon, and I wanted as much as an aggressive look as I can get with the stock rims, until I can purchase aftermarket. Is it possible to get spacers for the stock setup in order to push the rims out to the fender line, so the look is more agressive once the suspension is on. I will check ecstuning.com but I'm not sure of all the specs that I will need. If anyone has any info let me know.

Spacers should come with their own bolts. EV is right, ya will then need the appropriate bolts to put the wheel to the spacer.

Cause a spacer attaches to the hub. Then you now attach the wheel to the spacer. So a need for two sets of bolts. Hub and spacer, wheel and spacer.

Thanks, anyone done this with stock wheels? Or does this fall into the category of completely lame :thumbdown. I'll probably get spacers on the new wheels too. The look is more agressive with the wheels sitting flush with the fenders. In the meantime I might as well look as good as I can stock as I can. Is the best place to purchase ECS tuning?

EV is right, do your own thing. I think this B5 looks sick right here:


You can find better places to get the parts. ECS tends to be pricey. Overly pricey. Determine what you need, cruise the forums for used parts, shop around. Seems spacers go for about 60-80 a pair. You of course can find better at times.

Now about painting my manifold black... :lol:
