Post Spacer/Tire Dilemma ...

I recently took off spacers from the front and rear (F:18mm & R:15mm). I specifically targeted the rear because my 295/30/19 (Yokohama advans) on the right side was too close to the fender. I am considering on putting either the 15mm or 18mm in the front now? Any suggestions? Is it ok to just have a pair of spacers on the front? If so, which ones would suffice on my current setup? Trying to maintain that aggressive look.

Thanks

There are no issues just running one set of spacers. Go for it.

245/35/19-8.5 front (continentals)
295/30/19-9.5 rear (yoko advans)
You should have no problem with that set up. Mine wasn't rubbing at all, one side was just too close to the fender.

ive had them mounted and they are close to the fender as well. worried about compression on the track causing a rub but dont want to pull my spacers every time i change wheels at the track if i can avoid it.

Yea you definitely do not want to risk that, cause the damage will be costly. Exactly why I just took them out from the rear to avoid any mishaps!
