I put wheel spacers on my e-golf. 12mm front, 15mm rear to get them flush with the bodywork. Stance is way better and gets rid of the sucked-in tippy toes look. As the wheels now properly fill the fenders, it also makes the wheels appear bigger. It now looks more like the image of the car in the infotainment screen. Haha.
This, plus Michelin CrossClimate+ tires (OEM size) on the front axle has improved performance and handling considerably. Much more planted. Efficiency has also improved a good amount too which I wasn’t expecting. A combo of newer tire tech and perhaps marginally improved aero from the wheels being more flush with the bodywork is the only explanation I can think of.
Either way, I’m pleased with the performance improvements these simple mods seem to have liberated.
[apologies, not sure why images are displaying flipped. There doesn’t seem to be a way to fix?]
