Exclamation Anyone with spacers on 20” wheels?

Does anyone have spacers on the 20” wheels?
Dying to see pictures before I buy spacers
I’ve seen a lot of pics on 21 and 22” wheels
But those have different offsets.
The front wheels are 9.5” instead of 9”, the rear wheels are 10.5” instead of 9”

According to my calculations
I’d need 20mm spacers in the front and 30mm in the rear
That would match 15/20 on the 21/22” wheels

kmarei - I just installed 10mm front 20mm rear on my 20" wheels. I'll get some photos later today and post up.

Not the best photos. Rear looks more aggressive than in the photos but I'm also not looking for constant crud on my lower fenders.

Thank you very much
Looks good
But I think I need more aggressive than that
Maybe 18F and 25R

No doubt you'll likely be happy with bit more push out. This is my winter set in nasty Minnesota winters so I'm not too picky with how they turned out. Good luck!

The 18mm in front front came with extended bolts
The 25 for the back are the ones that come with short bolts
You attach spacer to the hub using these
And then you use the oem bolts to attach the wheel to the hub
I much prefer this kind
But the thinnest you can get them is 22.5mm
Was worried it would be too much for the front

The advantage of this kind ifs you are not using longer (weaker) bolts
And to all intents and purposes you treat the wheels the same way as if you didn’t have a spacer
You undo bolts, remove wheel
Reattach wheel and tighten bolts

As opposed to trying to match the whole in the spacer with the hole in the hub when you put in the wheel bolt

Sorry for the silly question, is 18 mm per axle or per wheel?
