Exactly. I ended up needing 5mm spacers on the front. The reason I needed them is somewhat due to the coilover used and height though. The vmaxx collars were contacting the wheels when they were all the way down.

It's a nice photo and all, but once your eye catches that wheel gap, it pretty much kills it. You just can't stop looking at it
