Default Question about wheel spacers

I wanna get wheel spacers but I have AWD. Will doing different size spacers on front and back mess me up? I was gonna do 15 on front and 20 on back.

Spacers can not mess up your AWD, incorrect tire sizes will, but not the spacers.
When you buy spacers I suggest you spend little extra money on high quality products H&R, Eibach, KW, ST Suspensions, Adaptec Speedware, Motorsport Tech. I would clearly stay away from non-brand el-cheapo eBay stuff. Wheel spacers aren't something to f*** with, imagine your wheel falling off while doing 80 on highway, that's pretty damn scary imo...

Nope. AWD will mess up if the rolling diameter of your wheels are off, spacers just push the wheel out so you're fine. I put a 20mm spacer on the rear of my car with ARP extended studs and I was still able to run the OEM lug nuts.

Spacers and offsets change the scrub radius. Highway cars are not impacted. Grocery getters, parking lot taxies may need a toe adjustment to preserve tires edges.
