Hey guys, so I know this sounds a little ridiculous so I wanted to get some extra feedback from everyone. Just to see if it would be as dangerous as I would think. So as of right now, the front two wheels are roughly 7/8" from being flush with the fender, while my rear passenger is 5/8" and the driver rear is 1 5/8" .. yes 1" pushed in further.. I'm guessing previous owners either got slammed, or slid hard into the curb. Anyways, in order to counter that I was looking into buying 1inch spacers for all around, and then one 2inch for the driver rear. 50mm is a lot, and I'm not too sure if this would be the right suggestion at all. Here's some pics, you can tell slightly. Look at the rears

Not the answer you probably want but you should get the damage repaired rather that adding the spacer. The spacers cause enough damage on their own. I can't imagine what could happen with the damage and spacer.

I can only imagine how fucked you would be with spacers. Spacers, even in 1/4" sizes, put a tremendous amount of strain on the axles/wheel bearings. Can you imagine turning? Or going over a speed bump when the axle is already showing flex? This is a suicidal idea OP. Fix your shit, then get the right wheel set. DO NOT mess with spacers. Theres a wheel fitment thread with 300+ pictures for a reason bro.

Get your vehicle inspected by a competent mechanic, see what damage there is, and fix it before you start modding/adding stress to some already overexerted parts. Safety above all else.
