Re: calling all photos and wallpapers...

Bought the Black Racing Pro N1 for my STI, 17x7.5 +48. The rear are fine but the front I have to use 1/4" thick wheel spacer to clear the brembos. Is this a good idea, to use a wheel spacer? Need some info/opinion on this. Thanks.

1/4" seems like a lot. i've never used 'em, but i'd never use em. a friend (not an sti driver) of mine totally hosed one of his wheel studs. he attributed his trouble to the spacer; i don't remember the details. he had to get the wheel cut off. ymmv.

Gauging interest in a Pre-Winter Cruise 11/16

SPACERS ARE BAD!!!!!!!! i know its hard to find a broad selection of wheels for the STi, but find a set that fits without spacers. spacers are fine for a ride that is all show and no go. they just create a headache that you don't need.

Spacers will completely ruin your handling, especially on a performance car like the STi. Don't do it.
