So I have a 09 GT-R with the gunmetal stock rims, and since im trying to save money for some volks or bbs rims, im looking for options to make my stance a bit more aggressive using spacers, So i have a few questions for the wheel experts on this forum. First question is what size spacer do I want to use for somewhat aggressive fitment without rubbing and without fender work. second question, is there any downside to using spacers? one case ive heard of is that the spacers were stuck and they had a real hard time trying to pull it out.(thats what she said) should i just leave it the way it is and save the money towards new rims? any advice will be gladly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I put H & R spacers on my 09 GT-R, 10mm F and 15mm R. I didn't want to be too aggressive and it looks good to me. The 15mm F and 20mm R maybe what you're looking for. I had my spacers for over two years now. I have no issue of sticking to the hub and drivability. The down side of the H & R, you have to replace the studs with longer ones. You're looking to spend @ $300 - $400 in parts and labor, maybe more or less.

I am in the same boat as u, Ive seen people use 15mm front and 20mm rears dropped on swift springs. Makes it look much more aggressive.

I think it's money well spent if it ll take more than a year to save up for rims. Most wheel sets for the gtr start at 4 k just for wheels. If you plan on using stock tires on 20s I've also read the stock run flats are not meant to be dismounted and mounted multiple times as it stretches the carcass.

So till then 200-250 is what I've seen spacers sell for. H&R, project kics, ichiban are ones I've heard used.

Spacers definitely enhance the appearance of the OEM wheels. I am running 15mm front and 20mm rears with OEM 2012 wheels at stock height and it looks much better. I am running bolt-on H&R spacers that did not require longer studs.

they say that a wider stance will give you better handling, but i honestly think its just for aesthetics purpose...thank you all for your reply i think i will go with 15mm front and 20mm in the rear....H&R prolly or maybe the ones from adrey...are those lugnuts absolutely necessary?

Did you have to remove the wheel hub to get the studs out, or can you just remove the caliper/rotors and then press it out while on the car?
