Default Rear wheels

So i'm getting some 5mm wheel spacers for the rear wheels only, i dont like how the rears sit in more than the front. I know spacers are not the greatest thing to get but i figure it wouldn't cause grief on the rear.

Anyway, has anyone done this or have pics?

5mm is like less than a quarter of an inch...?

Think about this statement REALLY hard. I'll give you a hint "TORQUE".

Unless the spacers have a centering hub, don't do it. I know a couple people who went that route without a centering hub and they had all kinds of vibration and broken stud problems.

If you are insistant on fixing the back to front spacing, find a set of wheels that have a different back spacing to fix the "problem". Of course, you won't be able to rotate your tires then...
