    Will I need a wheel spacer on my 5th gen coupe with HX's? Found a good deal on craigslist and thinking about purchasing. Just need to know what all it entails.

    If so, what size?

    Thanks in advance!

    Info easily searched for...

    You will need a 5mm spacer, the Ex has the larger brakes, the caliper will scrape on the wheel.

    I did search, all I found was a bunch of classified listings for hx's on google.
    And on this site I just found a bunch of posts asking if they have to roll their fenders with a certain size wheel spacer, or what are wheel spacers.

    I did search, thank you very much.

    But thanks for the answer :D

    (what's the tech section for? I'm sure any question could be searched down far enough and an answer could be found. If that's the case then why even have a tech section on the site?)
