Eibach ProKit (-1"), KYB GRs, 2003 GTS Wheels, 205 55 R16 Yokohama S-Drives.

Do I leave it stock, install spacers or wait for my next wheel/tire upgrade (~2 years time). Vote now!

spacers would improve the look if you got the right ones and they were installed and used safely (the correct application of longer studs or studded spacers depending on thickness). If 2 years wait is the alternative I vote for spacers.

I didnt vote because I dont have enougn information. the current offset on the wheels would help for one, and different spacers front and rear wasnt a listed option, but thats what it needs imho.

I would throw some 25mm spacers on the rear wheels.. But that's just me.

Can't stand how sunken in the rear is stock.

Considering how sunken in the wheels are, anything less than 20mm adapters aren't worth it IMO. Either make a significant difference to the look or save the cash for better fitting rims. Also considering how sunken in they are, it would probably take a huge (40mm maybe?) spacer to get it looking flush (at least from the pic and looking at the rears). I'm a fan of using spacers to make ill fitting wheels look better but anything more than 30mm is a HUGE spacer. Even then a 30mm is still a huge spacer, but a 30 would look pretty good in the back just eyeballing it, and maybe a 20mm up front.

Spacers and eventually get some wider tires on those rims to make it look better. Those 205's are kind of narrow. You need some 225's or 235's to fill up the space a little.

When the right offer comes my way, wider wheels will be in the cards, as they make the most performance sense. I've not used wheel spacers before, but the rear on the GTS is bothering me a bit.
