How will 3mm difference help. The tire in the rear will still be beyond the fender edge.

Depends on what tire size..I have been doing research on these spacers,I figured out that the 10mm rear and 12 mm front is okay for my application..

I don't think that works if you have the Perf Susp like I do. I have stock wheels and tires.

On anoher note, the difference in handling is quite noticeable. The car feels more planted to the ground - that's the good.

It also is more prone to understeer - that's the bad.
