    I ordered mine to correct a factory flaw in my wheels, one was cast with a 3mm discrepency in the backspace, so I ordered 3mm spacers. But they are really big over here. They give you a wider track, and thus help improve overall stability at high speeds, not to mention they make you car look like a meanie.

    keep in mind that spacers also influence the geometry of your suspension as with lowering, wider tires, stiffer parts, etc. Too wide of a spacer without the proper alignment will wear out parts very quickly and cost big bucks later.
