Hi,
Im finally about to mount some lm reps that Ive had sitting for a couple years now, specs are 19 x 8.5 et35. When test fitting them I noticed that they are already flush with front/rear fenders and any spacers would result in poke, which is not the effect Im looking for. Anyways from the multiple searches I discovered that I would need 5 and 10mm spacers, front and rear, for a super flush look without any poke. I am just curious how mine are that far out already? Most of the cars used for comparson seemed much lower than I am, would that somehow affect the spacing? Maybe the geometry of the suspension or more neg camber? Just trying to figure this out since I intend to lower my car more and would like to purchase spacers now if needed. Oh and Im 25" gtf
Sorry for the long post

Ill post some pics if someone could tell me how haha

If they looked flush when you test fit them then what makes you think you need an additional spacer? 35ET is perfect for a flush fit. A lowered car doesnt affect the spacing but it might look different visually.

Because of what I have read. For example Lazer Viking iirc is runnin an 8.5" wheel with an effective offset of et30 in front and et25 in rear? And his setup doesnt look like hes poking at all
