If you are in doubt about wheel spacers…Dont be!

You have 3 types of wheel spacers to choose from for the Porsche Panamera without rubbing fenders. 5mm, 7mm and 15mm. I think 15mm spacers look very good on most wheel and make the car look a little different.

Whatever brand you choose make sure you get HUB CENTRIC (they install on the center of the wheel snugly) wheel spacers or you will have wheel balance problems.

Most spacers will come with lug nuts. Here is a little guide on the lug nuts:
