DIY: Installing wheel spacers

Added some wheels spacers and I think they really help fill out the wheel well on the car.

I'm sure this has been discussed a billion times but do you notice a difference in the drive or is this mostly cosmetic?

I thought it was going to be just cosmetic, but I think it actually drives better now. Thought maybe it was in my head, but a lot of others have told me they think it drives better with spacers as well.

I don’t think the handling is noticeably different, but the steering feel is much better.
