would 25mm wheel spacers be dumb without widened fenders or fender flares?

I have no idea what you're asking...

the amount of poke/flushness all depends on the offset. My offset on these is +40, pretty lame offset and very close to stock steelies. if I have a +0 offset I would poke, if I had a +15 or +20 offset Id prob be flush without spacers. Personally, I like poke, but I like my orange wheels more, so I deal with lame offset.

Reviving a dead thread. I have never bought rims/tires and I'm new to sizes and all that. I am honestly thinking about keeping the stock 16" size and getting new rims for the tires I already have. Saving money. But I want to go wider. What kind of spacers should I get for those?

This may help you:
  • go to www.rimsntires.com
  • on the left side, click on Shop Rims by Car
  • on the new page, enter your vehicle data (year, make, model)
  • the OEM tire size will show up as 205/55-16. Click on Compare Sizes
  • the new page is a tire/wheel comparison tool, it shows the OEM tire/wheel combination on the left, and you input your proposed tire/wheel combination on the right. The tool is very helpful when shopping for new wheels/tires, especially when changing wheel sizes and/or tire widths.
  • the tool comments about speedometer error and attempts to determine fender and suspension clearance.
  • AFAIK the tool will not comment if tires are too narrow/wide for the wheel selected, nor does it comment about tire or wheel availability (ie you may inadvertantly specify a non-existing size)
Have fun shopping!

I want to keep the stock tires. Trying to find rims I like that work with those tires. Not really TRYING. Just "trying" I guess lol. I don't want to have to drop 700 dollars on a tire when I gotta replace one. Would love to go bigger, but gotta stay in te budget :-/

So basically if I understand right, the tire width doesn't really matter (to making it "flush") as much as the offset. I don't want to have to buy 9.5" tires if I can use what I have that don't cost a ton.

I think both come into play, I'm a little grey on the offset myself, but a lot of people run staggered wheels with wider wheels in the back by one inch and it looks pretty good.

And the stretch wouldn't do anything to harm the tires? Like I said. I'm new to all of this. I am concurrently doing my own independent research. What's up big words?!
