wheel adapters or camber kit?

im going for more of a "rally car" look.

Wheel adapters....are for converting a wheel with a different PCD (bolt pattern) to your car's PCD. These are often confused with spacers, which simply lower the offsets of your wheels, causing them to 'poke' out more.

A camber kit, in the method you seem to be describing it, would be used to gain clearance for aggressive wheel setups.

This thread would be much more productive if you just told us the wheels you were running and the suspension you have. We'll take all the guessing work out of what you'll need to achieve the 'rally car' look.

i just got the car around halloween. all stock suspension with the 20th anninversary wheels on it. and i guess i did have the wheel adapters confused with the spacers. but im looking at coil overs when it gets warm out again.

spacers would give it more of that "drag radial" look for example, right?

i think i had the spacers and adapters confused because looking at it, i didnt see how you can put a spacer on and still lock the wheel down tightly.

this is kind of a dumb thread sorry guys.
thanks for the help though
