Not to sound lame, but I don't know of anybody on this forum who uses wheel spacers... you'll probably have better luck with that topic on NASIOC.com

Wheel spacer are not for aesthetics. That's a completely unacceptable use for them.

Well I installed my coilovers and there not even as close to being all the way down and the inner part of the rear tires are rubbing on the coilover so what would u guys recommend me doing so my tires dint rub anymore. The front have the pillowball front mount so I have camber adjustability up front but not in the rear so what would u guys suggest?

I have no idea what's happening. Something else is going on because there is no chance period that the stock wheels will give you this problem unless you're running something like this:

Take a pic from the rear of the car.

Also as close as you can from where the rubbing is.

Wonder if the coils are different from the wagon and sedan.

I checked on nasioc.com and rs25.com and a lot of people have had the same problem. I ordered the eibach rear camber bolts and they said it'll fix all my problems just installing can be a bitch. The forum said it gives up to 1.5 degrees of adjustability and so did the dude from eibach plus they were only 18 bucks. So I'll try them out. Also I'll go out and get some pics of it today and show u guys
