    think most people use them purely for clearance reasons, arches, big brakes, or compensating for wrong offsets. you can put them on standard wheels to increase track while keeping it origional looking.

    Alot of people also use them purely for looks and to fill the arches.

    I got mine here.

    Dont buy the 10mm though as they dont have a lip for the wheel to go on.

    15mm or 20mm are the best for the rear
