My 260z has wheel spacers on the front to allow the fitting of 245/50-14 tyres, can the spacers affect the handling and will they stress the suspension. The car hangs on very well the only down side with the tyre is the very heavy low speed steering.
thanks

How thick are the spacers?
I have 1/4 spacers on my 240Z and have not noticed any problems. As long as the overall offset of the wheel/spacer remains about zero, you should be fine. The only down side to spacers is that you can have trouble getting the wheels to balance once they are on the car.
