Spacers?

I Have a 2012 wk2 altitude and I want my tires to come out to at least the wheel well. I really don't want new rims and I was thinking about spacers. What negative effects do spacers have on the vehicle. Is this a bad idea?

Re: Spacers?

Hey there! yes they do have some negatives. I dealt with them while back first of all the weight is distributed differently depending on how much space. It also will matter on the rims i doubt stock rims would make such big difference. Either way if they were big like mine the car is literally going faster than it reads since moving the weight out of it center of gravity and they might crack as well… thats when i switched to SPidertrax any questions let me hoped i helped1
