Ive got a set 20mm hubcentric wheel spacers & was thinking of putting them on the back to bring the rear wheels out abit?

But I was thinking if I don't compensate for the front & leave them as they are on the hub because they look & fit the arch well already on the front, Would this make the car feel like its nose diving or create understear with the track being abit wider ont the back than the front?

we used to run 32mm spacers a side at rear and 15mm on the front on my old track car and the handling was superb with next to no understeer

we experimented with spacers for a while and found that as a rule of thumb if you fitted say 20mm at rear then you need to fit 10mm to fronts, so half of what the rears use

Hubcentric spacers bolt on the hubstuds where your wheel sits then have there own studs built in to bolt your wheel on

I was always told spacers knacker your wheel bearing really quick?

Puts more load on the bearing but not a lot & we talking 10 to 32mm offset which not too extreme.
1.4bar boost & an aggressive driver puts a lot more load on them though :-)
