Re: Raising a 2012 RS

Ok. I see what you're saying. No worries as I won't be going that route. The simple spacers will do the trick or if I can get a same size tire but taller, that would be the ideal solution since I'm ready for tires anyway.
Thanks, Russ

OP, just note that if you change the tire size, you will need to get a tuner of some sort to inform the PCM about the change. If you do not, your speedo will not be correct. This will also impact the odometer.

I just learned that 21's were available on this car which would have been great, but I have no intention of replacing my rims, especially since I have 2 sets that I switch out for Winter/Summer.
Thanks, Russ

Well, that idea doesn't work. Those are already huge tires.... 28.7" diameter. I can't find a 20" tire that is a full 1" larger diameter. About 1/2" is the largest increase I could find, and that is only a 1/4" change in ride height.

Easier to do on something on a 4th Gen, with 26.0" stock tires.
