Yeah, don’t change a thing!!! If you ever decide you want a little more poke, just run some slightly wider tires!!!
Good point. Thanks for your feedback. Much appreciated

If it’s a 2021 lol 😆
Everyone on the thread has the '21 3.0 Base or Premium -- agreed, we've all got the same brakes; there's no bigger or smaller brakes between base or premium, just the logo and the painted calipers.

I thought I was missing something there, like a MY difference or a 2.0.

I'd say if any spacers were used, it would be just on the rears. Plus you don't have to worry as much about the heat issues discussed as those will be much cooler (and are smaller anyway).

Maybe it's just the picture, but it looks like the rears could use 10mm or so to have the same look as the fronts. Depends on the purpose however... if it's for driving - then I'm with others and would leave it alone without. If it's for show, then I'd probably run a smallish spacer on the rears... either that or just go with 305's back there.

Yeah its not necessarily for driving only purposes. Just wanting it to look right. I agree that the back looks like it could use a slight amount of spacer. I guess if it bugs me enough I can always try some on the back and see how it looks for a comparison. Thanks for your feedback.

Only partially related, a friend of mine who had 15mm spacers on his car (not a Supra), experienced some horrible wheel vibration when we went on a spirited cruise. We found that the spacer was expanding due to the heat on the brakes and tires and pushing the lug nuts out. And our OEM brakes get HOT. So make sure you account for your driving style and plans if considering them.
As a data point, I have Future Classic 12mm front and 15mm rear spacers with stock wheels on my 3.0. I tracked it at COTA with no issues whatsoever.

I'll just back up all the other comments, leave it spacers will cause all kinds of issues. It will look weird too, looks good now.
