Wheel spacer help!

So i want a better stance on my gs, I have Enkei EV5's on my car, i thought an inch from wheel spacers would do it some justice. Some people say i need 'deep-dish rims' for that (not sure what the difference between those and regular rims are) but other people say it's not necessary, some people say they are bad for your car, and other people say they aren't. Any thoughts? Thanks!

As long as you use quality spacers and don't get HUGE ones it'll be OK. Using a different offset wheel may be a better option from the stand point of less parts to go wrong, but in my opinion deep dish should be eaten, not installed on an Eclipse. Those wheels look better on other cars, but to each their own.

I'm using 30mm spacers on my car with no issue. I bought mines from ebay as well. People will say they mess up your wheel bearing which is true at some point but not as fast unless your wheel bearing are close to already being shot. I've been running mine's for 2 yrs no problem. Just make sure u get 5x114.3 hubcentric spacer with 67.1 center hub bore size. Almost all Mazda's as well with have this bore size too.
