2018 Panamera - wheel spacer question

Hi all -

Recently (this weekend) purchased a 2018 Panamera, and was wondering if anyone knows if there are wheel spacer options out already?

For purely aesthetic reasons, I think it could help. Thank you!

Thanks! This is helpful. Have you had any experience with the brand? Regarding size, not sure... was thinking of doing 15mm in the rear but not sure if thatíll stick out too much. Was hoping to see if someone on here has done it and can post pictures.

15 is a lot. More than youíd expect. Unless you really want it to stick out a lot. I had a cayenne that was very tucked in from factory and 18 was pretty aggressive stuck out a little. This car barely needs any help.

Your car is beautiful as is. Congratulations! Something else to consider is that too much offset may equate to more road debris thrown against the paint.

Good to know that 15 is too much. I definitely donít want it to stick out. Maybe just do a 7 in the rear and 5 in the front. Thanks man!

I just got rid of the Cayenne Diesel, and got this, and with the 21 inch rims on it, it wasnít tucked much.

Thanks! I had been waiting for the E-Hybrid, but itís taking much longer than I expected. I didnít want to waste another year of registration, if I was getting a different car.

This car car was at the dealership, and was able to get a good deal (or so I think, at least).

And you bring up a good point about kicked up debris from the wider track. Thanks!

Iím picking up the spacers tomorrow. Now I think only the rear needs it. I ordered 5 and 7 mm will see how it works out tomorrow night. Looks like 5 for the front may be too much but weíll see.

I got tester spacers from RSS in Costa Mesa in 5 7 and 15mm to see how aggressive I can get. Only problem is I donít think I have a car jack. Are these run flats?

I would always get spacers that have hubcentric lips to lessen or prevent and vibration at higher speeds. I think a 5 or 7mm might be too then to have lips. Good luck and keep us posted with before and after comparisons. Beautiful car btw.

these thin spacers use the factory hub to align themselves so no problem there
