doubling Wheel Spacers?

is it safe to double wheel spacer for a daily drive car? I got wide fender on my 2004 G35 coupe and the 2inch spacer i bought is not wide enough for a flush look with the fenders so i was wondering if i should double it up with the 1inch spacer since i cant find a 3inch spacer for the G35. I dont think there is an aftermarket 3 inch spacer for the G35 since i cant find any that is made for the G35. Should i just called it good with the 2 inch spacer for a daily drive car while still be on the safe side? im a pretty aggressive driver.

Definitely do not double up wheel spacers unless you want to to die a fiery death.

You don't buy wheel spacers for a vehicle, you buy them for a BOLT PATTERN, the G35 is a 5x114.3 bolt pattern. You shouldn't have any trouble finding 75mm wheel spacers.

Wide wheels with aggressive offset is the answer surely?

G-Scotland has the answer. You need fat tires, not ridiculous spacers.

Yeah! Fat tires. Say, 305. Push those numbers up. That's some kind of meaty fat.

Definitely no expert on the extra wide stance, crazy camber low rider or any other car craze that happened after 1975 but is it even safe to use a 75mm wheel spacer??

Seems like moving the wheel that far out would put way more stress on the wheel bearings at the very least.

Or are looks more important than parts longevity & safety?

it needs bigger tires. 18 inch dont look that good. i would upgrade it more, but im not planning on keeping the car long anyway. if anything major broke then i'll just drive it straight into the junk yard. i only got the fender because i got rust on my rear fender and cant get rid of it so i cut out the rust and decide to bolt on a fender. i dont like going rice, but its better then looking at the rust.
