ONLY 2 Days to Go!

Im looking at some wheel spacers, but have no idea if they are going to fit or not. My rims are 15x7 with either a 40 or a 42 offset. The spacers are 1" and 3/4". Could I put 1 inch in the back and 3/4 in the front, or no? Thanks

If you have a 42 mm offset (1.653"), and the 7" rim measures 8" to the outside (typically they do on alloy wheels), then you'd have a 5.653" backspacing without a wheel spacer. I would definitely go for the 1" front/3/4" rear spacers to correct the track width issues a GT has.

..?

If I do the 1" in the front, and 3/4 in the back, wont you be able to tell that the front wheels are farther apart then the back ones? I don't really want it to look like that.. If the 3/4 dont have any chance of fitting in the front, I may just try to find all 1"

Those spacers are hub-centric where as our Opels are lug-centric. They won't center properly...
