Default Wheel spacers installed

Hello fellow Lexus NX owners. A new member here and my first post. Thought Iíd be helpful right off the bat by adding pics of my wifeís 2015 Atomic Silver FSport with wheel spacers on factory 18x7.5 wheels.

Picked up a pair of hubcentric 15mm spacers for the fronts and a pair of 25mm for the rears. Bought from a reputable seller on eBay for about $30USD each pair.
I had the oem Michelin Primacy 225 60 18 tires removed shortly after taking ownership and installed beefier 245 55 18 Toyo All weather Celsius tires. I know itís not the best for fuel economy but I think cars from the factory are usually installed with too skinny of a tire and do nothing for the overal look.
To cut to the chase here are a few pics. Hopefully will help out other owners who are thinking about wider tires and how it would look spaced out to fill the wheel well on the NX a bit better. Top of the tires now sit perfectly flush with the fender flares.



Oh btw, hopefully I posted this in the proper area in the forum. I apologize ahead of time if I didnít.

Hi and Welcome,

The stance of the Nx from the rear does still bother me, so I was thinking of doing the same myself. I once put a set of spacers on my previous A5 and it did look sweet.
I just wasn’t sure how it would look on the Nx and didn’t want to mess around with the mpg, but now I have seen yours I may have a second look.
Do you have any photos from the rear ?

Thanks

i have a similar set up on mine with 15mm fronts and 25mm rears. I added the 19Ē f-sport wheels, it has a different offset which pushed the wheels in a bit even though I went from a 225 tire to 235.....itís still not an X5 M

My NX has 20x10+40mm Rotiform BLQ R112 on the back with 20x8.5+in the front. The back wheels have 275/40R20 Pirelli P-Zeros. Here is what it looks like from behind.

Hey folks - new member and new owner of a 2016 F-Sport. One of the first things I did was add spacers because I can't stand the anemic sucked-in look. Went with 25mm front & back.

Nice pics! Considering doing this to my NX but I am worried about the fuel economy dropping ? Any significant change in yours?

I get a consistent 19-20mpg average. I do a lot of city though. Also, I'm running the largest and widest wheel/tire set up of the group.
