    I am about to place an order with the very helpful staff at Ricambi today. I am wondering anyone's feedback on 15 mm versus 20 mm spacers for a 1996 F 355 Spider with stock wheels (of course) :)

    12 or 15mm hills spacers here, had them on for 6-7 years now with out any problems what so ever. Gives a great stance and the cars handeling does not suffer what so ever. I also run larger 295/35 P Zeros on stock rims, with even tyre wear front and back. I run 3-5 k miles a year during summer.

    how does just 15 in rear sound? do you think leaving the fronts as is will look odd?

    Yes it will look odd. Have them all round and this will put the wheels right up to the wheel arches/fenders. Just having them on the rear will look odd due to the rears being up to the fenders, on the 355 the front wheels are quite away into the arch/fender standard.
    If you need a picture of how the car stands/looks, let me know and i will shoot you a PM.

    IMHO they need to be fitted all round or not at all, the fronts already look under nourished, it would be accentuated if you spaced out the rear.

    I went with H&R's 15mm front and rear with 295's in the rear, filled out nicely. I would go up to 20's but not below 15 IMO. Remember to get longer wheel bolts, mine are 70mm.
