This distance is the size spacer you will need to achieve the look that flushes or nearly flushes with the fender line. Too thin, you will still have wheel/caliper interference. Too thick, and your tires will hit the fenders. Use proper size of spacers not only ensure safety but also avoid breaking your local laws and regulations. Common requirements like 2-inch wheel spacers GL8, 1-inch wheel spacers GL8, 1.5-inch wheel spacers GL8… Currently, BONOSS provides 15mm-50mm thickness spacers to meet your needs.
