Excuse the long post but I don't want to c**k this up....
I've got the standard Rays on my 350, and after deciding I couldn't put up with the wheels being tucked so far in the arches anymore, I went with 25mm Eibach spacers rear and 20mm up front after looking at the multitudes of threads on here, and looks wise the set up is perfect, however the handling is now horrific...
I was running 20mm spacers on the rear and none on the front whilst the 25mm spacers were on the way and the turn in on the car was great, nice and tight, very stable, almost darty, now I've taken the 20's off the rear and gone for the more usual 25 rear 20 up front, the front end feels wallowy and un-responsive with the added negative of feeling skitish at higher speed, you can feel the weight transfering side to side with steering wheel input without the front changing direction much, i.e. you can feel the front suspension working hard.
Long and short of it I cant believe a 20mm spacer has such an effect on the car and I just can't live with it so the rays and spacers will be going ASAP, but I'm concerned that by changing wheels I'll end up with the same issue going for rims with an offset that gives me a flush to arch look?
Could anyone confirm the issue is moving the whole of the rim width out 20mm, i.e. could I solve the issue by running a rim an inch wider on front with a 20mm lower offset? I don't want to spend a fortune on wheels to be disappointed
Apologies for the long post, I've read thread after thread but none the wiser, any advice would be welcome.
