Surprisingly, it's very noticeable when you see it with your own eye.
I wasn't expecting it going in, but after the fact, the wheel spacers has turned out to be the favorite mod I've done on mine.

Pretty easy to do yourself. The Macht Schnell's come with extended lugs to compensate for the spacers.
Quite a few vendors carry them. I got mine from iND.

Anyone know the cost of the clear white reflectors including install - im in the bay area and not exactly the most handy person.

Update: with 18mm front / 15mm rear spacers rubbing sometimes occurred, on the rear only, with my original Pirelli PZero's, but not my new Michelin PS2s.

Bought them from EAS. Installed by Sonic MS but pretty much any shop will do it for ~$40 I think.

BTW I have an extra pair of (unopened) 12mm spacers (same brand, Macht Schnell) I bought because of the above problem, but ended up not needing them with the new tires.

I got mine off eBay for like $30. You can install them yourself, check the DIY forum (I think you just need a flathead screwdriver and soft towel or painter's tape to protect the paint)

wonder if being dropped on Eibachs would cause any rubbing with a 18/15 spacers on stock 220m/p.zero setup?
