The reason why there is a 5mm difference between front and rear is because the fronts actually pivot, and the rears don't. If you want the front and rear to look equally flush, do 10mm on all 4 corners. If you do 10 in the front, and 15 in the rear, the rear tires will be more flush than the fronts.

would there be a problem using spacers on AWD???.....coz the rear tires on AWD is the same as the fronts...so the gap from tire to fender is even more....i think i would need to use 20 or 25mm for the rear to make it flush....i hate the indented look of my rear tires

What are you asking?! If you want the front and rear to be MORE flush, but also EQUALLY flush, then yes. If you want the front and rear to each be as flush as possible without rubbing, the do 10 on the front, and 15 on the rear.

From my knowledge, no. Because the only difference that would cause a problem on a AWD is the overall diameter of the tire that touches road surface. This creates more/less resistant and could cause overall stress. Also weight could make a difference too, again more/less resistance. But spacers only push out the wheels further and can't make a dramatic weight difference that could cause any problems for a AWD. I'm thinking of getting a set myself, but I'm waiting for a custom set to be made and the guy that makes them isn't in town lately.

Haha Chris, I wish I could! This is a temporary solution to satisfy me until I can buy my Volks...

Also, I think I just figured out why my measurements are so much more than everyone else's - I just got my springs installed on Saturday, and I haven't gotten an alignment yet. Driving this evening I noticed I have negative camber on the rear wheels, which would definitely increase the gap at the top of the wheel (where I'm taking the measurements). I should probably wait until I get my alignment done before taking any further measurements... I wanted to post some pictures tonight, but by the time I had a chance it was already too dark, but I'll be sure to take some tomorrow.

Hey Javier, yeah, I actually noticed some negative camber on mine. Then I looked at a BMW and I was like.. well, at least mine isn't that bad. =x hahaha. I might get it realigned again, but first I need to find an exhuast. Too much added weight now with sub so it's affecting my camber more.

Oh yeah, check out my K&N thread. Also, haha, I might be willing to let go of my volks for a decent price in the near future, PM me if you're interested.
