Rear Spacer recommendation *Pic included*

Sorry for the bad picture/angle of the picture. It's the only picture I currently have on my computer that my nephew took.

I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures or not, but the rear tires are tucked in and I would like to add some spacers to the rear to fill out the rear fender. How many mm spacer(if you can even tell) should I add? Also, is there a difference in brand? Will I have to get an alignment after adding spacers. How will spacers effect the handling?

Thanks

Assuming that those are Victor Zehn wheels (9.5 +49 et ), depending on how aggressive you want to go, a 10 -15 mm spacer will bring the rear wheels out nicely . Also, no alignment is necessary, and changes in handling are subjective. As far as brands are concerned, if you search the forum you'll find some threads regarding good sources to purchase them from .
