Wheel Spacer Advice

If I were to get wheel spacers of my V12S (2015) - anyone know which is the best and what offset would be the best - also any negatives?

Looking to get tires inline with fender edges front and rear

I was in the same boat. I wanted my stock wheels and tires to line up flush with the fenders. I went with the RSC Tuning hub-centric spacers, 15mm front and 20mm rear.

They come with longer wheel bolts so you'd need to press out the (shorter) stock bolts and press in the longer bolts. It's a bit of a pain but I felt this was a safer option than the Adaptec spacers that bolt on to the hub then you bolt the wheel on to the spacer.

Anyway, here are some pics:

that looks great

I used 5mm spacers on front & 11mm on rear and revised lug nuts which have thread extended all the way to the end of the nut so no need to change out the studs

H&R 23mm rear and 11mm front.
I feel the front could use 15mm spacer but rear sits perfect.







I actually bought 15mm spacers off eBay and revised nuts but the spacer didn't fit.

Sorry, I just noticed you wrote you have a V12S. Your wheel offsets might be different than those on our V8V. Please double check as the 15mm front and 20mm rear might not work for your car. I know I was shopping for brake pads recently and the front pads for the V8V is different from the V12S.

I bought the H&R 23mm rear for my 08 V8V. I have not installed them yet. Question. Are these just bolt on? Or do the wheel studs need to be trimmed to clear the wheels? I was hoping they are just bolt on

if you have the wheels in your photo - the seven spoke ones, then you need to install shorter studs as they foul the back of the wheel

some other wheels have deeper 'pockets' in the rear face iof the wheel and will work ok

Yup I do have the 7 spoke 19 wheels on my car. Shame. I thought this would be an easy bolt on project for the weekend. Oh well. Glad I asked before I ripped into it.
