So I've read through a couple threads on here but for some reason I cannot find any spacers dart specific. I want to sit basically flush with the fenders as long as it still gives suspension clearance. I might eventually wanna get lowering springs. I'm thinking either 10mm or 12mm is the correct size to go with. Anyone have any links or brands to go with that's not outrageously expensive? I don't want cheap eBay ones either, I'm just not trying to drop $350-400 for spacers and lugs haha.

Here is a link to one of our vendors here, Deyeme Racing... They sell spacers. https://www.deyemeracing.com/Shop_Products.aspx#

Now, I had a personal note i'd like to place here... take it or leave it... I have seen nothing but problems when running spacers, mixed with lowering springs and camber kits. The stock suspension was not meant to sit like that and can cause uneven tread wear and possible steering and suspension issues. Just cause it looks cool, doesnt mean its good for your car.

Very true. Wouldn't a four wheel alignment take care of that though? Or is that outside the scope of an alignment?

yes, very interested in hearing feedback on that aspect.

I do understand that, I don't think I'm going to get lowering springs anytime soon, it's just a thought. Would an alignment like others said make up for the tire ware?

I had Deyeme's 19mm spacer on stock 18's, they sat flush and I didn't experience any irregular tread wear. I'm sure if springs were added into the equation, irregular wear would occur. I currently have sportiness installed and the springs affect the camber on the rear significantly.

You had 19mm? Have any pictures with them installed? I'd love to see

I don't.....But they make your rubbers flush with the fenders.

I got 19's on stock 17" rims. I can try and grab a picture or 2 after work if you'd like.
Yea that would be awesome man if you could! I just want to make sure that if I go flush, I'll still have suspension travel and won't rub on the fender lips.

@Druuciferr image-3431986888.jpg I hope this helps, that's on stock suspension. I had hard time getting decent picture. It's so close to being completely flush but not quite. It sticks out past the fender on bottom half but top of the tire it's really close

That's how the tires are without spaces just because of the body shape of the car though. So that looks good! No irregular tire ware or anthing like that?

I've had them about 3.5 months on spacers and haven't noticed any irregular wear. I just put my summers on today as you can see in picture.

Also, do you recall how much you paid for the whole kit?

Did you have any wear issues? Do you remember how much you paid for the whole kit? Just trying to get everyones perspective. With lugs and the spacers on deyemes it's costing $312 after shipping and what-not.

I would have to say yes, That an alignment would help fix the uneven tread wear when adding the lowering springs with the spacers... But it may cost a pretty penny to do so. Thats pretty much why ive stayed away from those kinds of mods... It does look cool, dont get me wrong, but the amount of money to make them run correctly and not have any suspension, steering or tread wear issues isnt worth it to me... But then again, I base majority of my mods on performance and not aesthetics.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Exitus04 again.
