Whose running wheel spacers?

I measured before ordering the wheels and went with the lowest they offered (+24mm) in a 20x11.5 and went with the spacers to achieve the 9mm required to flush out the 20x11.5 wheel/tire.

Ok I see.

Mine are flush at the fender, but will rub very lightly inside if camber is out of spec. Itís scary how tight they fit in there.

I donít believe there is a need for spacers as long as everything is dialed in. Definitely do not want a tire to come apart in there, Iím sure major damage could occur.
