Looking at a 4pack(20mm front 25mm rears) . On Ebay as new at $249.00. I'ce seen the FD's and HR's and both are considerably more money. I've read about the quality of both but the price difference is very big.

Anybody have experience with this brand?

For the guys who have used them, my concerns are suspension geometry changes. Granted there will be a small lateral increase in traction with a wider stance. Car designers spend a great deal of time dialing in handling characteristics with suspension geometry. MY concerns are toe in, camber and also wheel bearing wear with the load further out.

How have wheel spacers changed the performance for those who have them?

Thanks all for your insight. It's appreciated. The BOSSNOOS/Bloxport looks like a really good product. The bottom-line is I'm not sure I can trust them. Just not enough info on them. They may be perfectly fine but my nature would be continually suspicious of there quality. I ended up going with the HR's(25mm rears/ 22mm fronts) Moderately priced and the company has a good reputation for making quality stuff.

You can never tell with any product these days...It says German, but the parent company is based in Germany and the product is made in China...Not just wheel spacers, but the entire market of everything is littered with knock off products..It kinda sucks as a consumer...It sucks up a bunch of your time trying to figure out if something is a POS...That is why I just buy from companies I know...I have been burned myself by junk products..That wasn't a rant BTW....It was a thought...;) J
A lot less stress buying from known companies. In venturing into buying the GT it's a whole new learning curve for me. This forum is certainly a valuable resource in advice and steering me in a good direction. I'm thankful for that! Ordering anything from China that's more than a few bucks is a whole other animal in product support and reliable info.

I live in Troy Michigan and there is a Maserati dealership and service dept. not far from me. Part of my decision in buying the the GT was to have a local dealership if I run into areas beyond what I can do. Don't know how good they are, but at some point I may find out lol.

Well I'll be damned...I'm in Troy too!

I work on the car myself so haven't had the need to take it to the dealer on Maplelawn but I did get the wheel lock key from the parts department there...I was at DiscountTire for new tires and couldn't find the wheel lock key. I didn't want to reschedule the install so I called the parts department to see if they had it in stock. The guy was super helpful and offered to stay open past closing time so that I could pick up the key and get the tires installed same day. Maybe the service department is equally good?

Anyways, I work nearby and drive by there every now and then since the Maserati, Lamborghini, Bentley, Bugatti and Aston Martin service is all in the same space. Always see something nice parked out front...

Hi Neighbor! I haven't needed to call for any stuff yet, but they seemed really friendly there. It's a pretty big dealership and lots of eye candy.
