I finally found what appears to be the ideal spacer and suspension setup for the more conservative A90 owners that are looking for a slightly more aggressive stance. If you are looking for a clean and slightly more aggressive setup but you prefer a more refined look and your "Boy Racer" days are behind you, please review the below photos and see if this is the look you are going for. I prefer an OEM+ appearance these days and want to keep the factory wheels (Switching to A91 black wheels this week). I also went with the H&R Sport Spring kit which was relatively simple to install and only took me 4 hours to do alone in my garage. The spring kit provides a nice ~1" drop while retaining the factory tuned ride almost entirely. Originally I had 12.5mm spacers in the front and 15mm spacers in the rear and after close analysis it really did seem to slightly lack the fill that I was looking for.

The suspension and wheel setup in its current form is as follows:

Front:
OEM Wheels and Tires 255/35/19
H&R 15mm Black Spacers with 43mm Bolts
H&R Sport Springs (Approximately 1" Drop)
ZL1 Rock Guards

Rear:
OEM Wheels and Tires 275/35/19
H&R 18mm Black Spacers with 50mm Bolts
H&R Sport Springs (Approximately 7/8" Drop)
ZL1 Rock Guards

Pay close attention to the tires sidewall lip slightly protruding from the rear of the body, the actual tread still tucked under the car.

In my opinion, this configuration utilizing the 18mm spacers in the rear provides the best aggressive fitment of the OEM wheels




Front Close.jpg

The same is true for the front wheels utilizing the 15mm spacers, with the sidewall lip slightly protruding from the body with the actual tread still under the fender

Overall the stance is refined and mature, perfect for someone looking for an OEM+ appearance that leans aggressive

It is also worth noting how well the shape of the wheels align with the contour of the rear fenders in this configuration. Precisely how a designer would flow their body lines in a rendering.


I'll be installing a set of Black A91 wheels with the same tires tomorrow afternoon so there will be some fresh pics after. I just wanted to share my findings with hopes of steering someone in the right direction!

I would stay away from spacers especially on a high tq vehicle like the Supra. If you want to achieve the wider stance, run lower offset/wider wheels or wider tires. Running spacers is like ghetto rigging a car. It can come loose on the track and over time. Your putting a $200 part and cheaping out on a brand new $60k car. I never understood why people run spacers. It’s like putting a bandaid on a broken leg.

When using Hub centric spacers, the above issue is not something that anyone will really have to worry about, now using stuff like adapters and cheap spacers can have negative and dangerous effects, but I would not worry about H&R, I have the future classic 12/15mm on my car and it rides and drives perfect, if not better.

This looks great, did you purchase your gear from turnermotorsport? also would you change the size spacers if you could do it again?

I purchased the spacers and bolts from Speed Industry, links below:

Honestly, I think this really is the perfect fitment for me.

Could a 20mm/18mm setup work with the actual tread still under the fender? Probably.. with the OEM tire sizes.

I would like to increase the tire width to F: 265/35/19 and R: 285/35/19 when I eventually wear this set out. That extra 10mm of width overall will bring the tread out to just inside the edge of the fender with the 18mm/15mm setup I'm running now, which I think is the maximum the tire should be offset.
