    B9 20mm spacers all around on 17" OEM wheels

    I've been digging around on numerous threads for people who threw on spacers on their OEM 17" wheels, and in a majority of these posts, almost everyone is getting 15mm spacers on the front and 20mm in the back.

    Last night I went ahead and ordered two pairs of 20mm ECS spacers and now I'm starting to doubt my purchase. Should I get 15mm for the front or should I be ok running 20mm all around?

    how wide are the wheels? 8 7 or 7.5?

    from what I know, on my 8.5 wide oem wheels I put 15mm spacers and it tucked just fine, if you put 20mm you should tuck with anything under 7.5.

    when I say tuck I mean like a flex it won't hit fender, but may appear flush at stock height.

    The wheels are 7.5 wide and I'm installing h&r sport springs on them as well. Other than the size being an issue, is it common to have the same size spacers all the way around?

    okay, good choice in suspension!

    I wouldn't say it's common, as it's a a larger size, but people do run 20mm, most common is probably 5 or 10, you shouldn't have any problems, just gonna need longer bolts!

    Thanks for your response! That puts my mind at ease lol. Fortunately the spacers I ordered from ECS comes with the longer bolts. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-part...6-ecs-024~kt2/
