They push the wheel further out in the wheel well. I put 15mm on my rears and they make it look more aggressive and wider.

You place the spacer between your wheels and your car...pushes the wheels out further giving you a wider track. It can be used to help your wheels clear big brake kits, to eliminate the problem of your tires rubbing against your spring/struts, for looks, and can even improve handling.

thanks guys... does this make the tire wear faster?? and does it make the car look like an hispanic riced up piece of crap where the wheel sticks out like none other... you know what i mean??? where they put 14" wheels and have the wheel stick out further than the wheel wells, where you almost need a new longer axle???

If you compare stock wheels to aftermarket wheels, you can see that most aftermarket wheels sit flush with the edge of the fender, whereas stock wheels look pushed into the wheel well. You can use these with stock wheels to make them fit better. Or, if you have aftermarket wheels with a higher offset than ideal, you can use these to bring them out to the proper place. And no, they won't wear out your tires more than normal.

Just look at the position your wheels sit inside your fenders. If it looks like it can handle being pushed out 10mm more, than you can get run these no problem.

not at all. in fact, lots of porsches come with spacers from the factory. also, ACS wheels come with spacers too. you won't notice any difference in the car's drivability with spacers.
