Spacers

Anyone have an idea what 15mm spacers all round would look like on stock springs?

This dude has a video installing 15mm spacers. You can "semi" see the result toward the end of the video.

Can't tell...is that a stock wheel? If not, does it have the same width/offset as stock?

I wouldn't run spacers myself, but 10mm looks best here. If you go 15, better have PPF.

I'm going to be running 7.5mm all around. Should remain quite conservative but exactly what im looking for. 15mm is too much imo and I'd be a bit concerned for rock chips on the quarter panel.

If they drop it it'll have little to no poke.

Yes. But what size spacer will depend on wheel offsets, and whether you're dropped ,

You don't want too much Poke and or Rubbing.

Yep! You can add them whenever next time you take your wheels off.

15mm stick out too far. Even 10mm are too much. Most I'd go is 5-7.5mm. Frankly, stock is just about perfect.

stock looks great. I'm all for aesthetics and giving a car a little bit of stance...but damn it hurts my eyes to see rubber sticking out of the fender well and lowered to where it covers the tires in any way. makes the car look like horrible lol. almost cheapens the look.

On a M2C I would say 5-8mm is the max on stock wheels. The non comp cars you could run a lot more.
