I track a lot and would want more not less particullary in the front. most people arent downsizing their rears except for maybe a square winter set up.
Thanks 1more! This is for a winter square setup. I have blizzaks 235/40/18. I still have the following questions:

1) Will it work without a spacer on the rear?

2) if I don't put a spacer on the rear will it affect camber/alignment?

3) so would it be a 12mm or a 20mm spacer I would need on the rear to being it back to OEM stance?

4) if I bring it back to OEM stance with the use of a spacer, will there be any alignment/camber issues?

5) what are the risks of using spacers?

Ugh. I'm frustrated I didn't know this before I purchased.
