Anyone know about wheel spacers? I have been searching all over for the wheels I want in ET45 but all I can find is ET20. Is there a way to use spacers to make up the difference? I am confused about how they work.

ET20 sticks further our than a ET45. If you used a spacer, it would sit even further out. You can't use a spacer to go from a ET20 to a ET45.... ( I hope this makes sense )

Excuse My ignorance in the topic but I don't know nothing about it..
The 18" OEM wheels shows ET48 on the back of the wheel.
Having spacers installed on 4 wheels, what kind of benefits will bring to the ride?
Better handling, cornering appearance ?
Can somebody explains me more about it?
I appreciate all your help.

Understood... So 32 would be out of the question as well because it would probably rub fender. Bah! Looks like I will need to wait until the 45's are available again.

Spacers move the wheel out. As long as the wheels still fit and there's only a tiny change, they really don't make any noticeable performance difference. Moving the wheels out increases the stance of the car and can improve how the wheels fill the wheel well. Be careful because the spacers shorten how far the lug bolts go into the hub. They also add a very small amount of weight.
