Hi All FJ drivers and Capri,

Can you guide me if I need to do a wheel alignment if I fix used spacers.

I have a 2012 FJ with stock tyres 265, 70, 17"

Will these cause a rub on the inner liner? Should I go for 16" and change my rims as well?

Adding to the above can someone kindly confirm if they have this in the 2012 FJ factory cyclone air intake Image

Hi Desert Fox

I have zero experience of the FJ or wheel spacers......but....

Spacers push the entire wheel out, so there should be less rubbing.

Assuming they are machined properly and installed correctly, you should not need any re-alignment.
It has just pushed the wheels out, it has not changed any camber, caster or toe.

I have heard about people having vibration issues with spacers. This could come if they are machined skew, off-centre or with too much 'wobble' on the bolts, allowing an off-centre instalation.

Regarding the picture..... what is it???

Regards
Paul

I would suggest you to make wheel and tyre balancing after installing spacers, directly with wheel on the car. There are many in Sharjha BMW road, who are doing it.
