only thing I would pass on is the 2" wheel spacers. I've seen a bunch of smaller ones crack and break and cause some significant damage, so there's no way I would let the entire weight of my car plus all the torque go through a 2" thick piece of aluminum. It also changes the sheer point on the lugnuts, and puts stress on the wheel bearings that they were not designed to handle. The goal is to keep the weight centered on the wheel bearings, so all the force is evenly spread over them. By moving the wheel out 2" by itself, you effectively killed that, and all the weight will be supported solely by the lugnuts alone.

Definately not a wheel spacer fan, if you want the rear end to appear wider, buy wider wheels and tires.
