Customer sent me some pics of wheel spacers installed on a 570s, that we supplied him.
These spacers are super light and all the excess material has been machine out.

We have a few sets in stock ready to ship

Price is $400

Not trying to be offensive to anyone please, but why do people do this?

Is it just for appearance? Is there a performance factor?

And why do manufacturers do it the way they do? Why do they not offer this as an option? Looks like plenty of people, especially young (I’m 64) are all about this, can’t bear the stock look.

I follow trucks, have a Toyota TRD PRO. Great handling truck. Seems all the kids have already ordered their lift kits and trim the vehicle to have “big ‘ol tires”. No doubt it messes up how they drive but it seems just something they all do no matter what.
We all go through a thing where we just want to do something to our cars. Make them a little more personal, ours. Or a lot more. I remember getting a fake leather steering wheel cover for my first car, a 1965 Plymouth Satellite. Age 16. My first mod.

Much later on I wound up modding a Lotus Elise all the way to track only. Roll cage, fire suppression. Trailer and tow vehicle. Was great fun, especially as eventually all mods were for safety and performance.

I don’t get why people do lots of things to their vehicles. Take a great driving truck and jack it up ‘till it’s only suitable as a “Mall crawler”. Get a superb sports car and start correcting the suspension, stuff the engineers failed to notice. Run the tires out past the fenders and find out why we have fenders.

Nowadays I get a new car set up nicely and add floor mats, license plate frame, and radar detector mount. Perfection!

But if it floats someone’s boat to have an appearance change that I would not notice ever then go for it.
