Default Spacers for 21 SportPlus

Hi, I would love to add spacers on my SportPlus rims. Offset front is 50 and rear is 45. What would be the biggest spacers I could mount on without damaging something?

My 957 came with spacers from the previous owner. I didn't measure them last time I had a wheel off, but they are probably 25mm. They push the wheels out to the be flush with the wheel well and flare. I have had zero problems with them.

Hi Avec! Big thanks for the answer! Are all 4 spacers 25mm and what offset you have?

They are OEM 21x10, so I think et50.

Here is how they look

Damn they look very nice!! Would love to get the same result! Since my rear offset is 45 do I need 30mm spacers to get the same result?

I wouldn't go much bigger than 25mm if it were me for safety reasons. Make sure you get the appropriate length bolts to accompany them!

I would also add that I have 22mm spacers on the rear of my stock sized (21x10.5) wheels in the rear. To accommodate that I used longer lug bolts.

I bought these and they worked perfectly and a great price too. For 22-25mm 58mm bolts is the correct size.

Amazon Amazon

In the winters I have 265's all around on 19's and I use the same spacers in the rear and 18mm spacers in the front to make things look normal. Same 58mm Lug Bolts front and back for that.

Big thanks for the answers! So 25mm front and 25mm rear would be on the safe side with an offset of 50 front and 45 rear?

That would be fine. As mentioned before, get extended mounting bolts. The bolts need to be 25mm longer as well.

I changed my front rotors last summer and found that the aluminum spacer had locked to the steel rotor. It was a pain to get off, so when you put yours on, but a thin layer of grease on the mating surface to prevent this. Even with this, I don't have any issues with the spacer moving during tire changes. The hub ring fit is tight enough to keep everything where it should be. Use the wheel alignment tool if you do have any problems.

Yeah, there can be some galvanic corrosion with that much aluminum and steel mated together.

A BFH and a towel really helps with getting them off later. I had one stick pretty tightly to one of my sport techno rims, but it was quick work with those two things.

The included threaded rod in the trunk toolkit for aligning and mounting wheels back on the hubs is a pretty nifty little device and definitely becomes the right tool for the job when you add spacers into the equation.
