    Hey guys!

    finally got around to lowering my car and I decided on D2 lowering springs. Love the drop! Don’t love the sunken in look of my HFP wheels on them due to the offset. Not in the market for new tires yet and I love the look of my HFP wheels.

    I’m about to order wheel spacers and I’m fairly certain they’ll rub but I wanted to make sure I won’t have poke.

    I’m looking at garage line wheel spacers with 20mm in the front and 25mm in the back.
    What do I need to do to get them to fit right?
    I also ordered camber arms to get my alignment back into spec.
    Anything else I should do or lookout for?

    Just make sure you bought spacer from a reputable brand since you will be using the spacers bolts. To many horror stories of people losing wheels or breaking wheel studs because they bought some $50 spacers off eBay that used cheap metal. I wanna say you’ll clear the wheel studs, but since the wheels are stock and if the spacer doesn’t clear the wheel studs then your going to have to trim them down so that they don’t cause uneven seating of the wheel. Also make sure you got hub centric spacers because stock wheels use the hub to center the wheel. So hub centric spacers 64.1mm .. other than that Not entirely sure what the offset is of the HFP tires, but if they’re like the other stock tires at +50 offset, then that’ll put dead center flush with the fender and might cause some rubbing since I believe D2 springs lower the car more than the Eibach Sportline’s. The rears with the +25 you’ll have a poke look

    sweet! Thank you for the reply! I’ve seen a bunch of people on the forums here use GarageLine and Perrin spacers, according to GarageLines’s site I shouldn’t have to trim studs but thanks for the heads up. They are hub centric spacers too! D2 springs lower almost 2 inches, and I ordered them so we’ll see how this goes! Haha
