Don't do it. Buy some rims with an offset.

My buddy with a 97' runs them on the front with his 17 inch mustang gt rims and it seems likes hes doing wheel barrings every month. I want some as well but it seems like its got bad writen all over it.

I understand not wanting to spend alot of money, but the correct way to get the look you want is with new wheels. Find some used wheels with a negative offset for cheap. Some tire shops wont even pull your vehicle into their shop if they know you have wheel spacers. I personally do not feel like they are safe at all.

ill never tell anyone to run wheel spacers.

ill always tell people its a bad idea.
