I have a 2016 Touring model. Looking to put some spacers to push the stock wheels out closer to the edge of the fender. It for the look of the car, not a performance modification. Has anyone done this?

I have the same model/spec. Not sure how far you need to go. But wonder if just going to wider tires would satisfy you.

Wider wheels are always the best process for enhancing the stance.

if you DO consider spacers, make sure you provide adequate engagement of the lugs. Also be sure to buy spacers with hub-centering capabilities.

Thanks for the advice. I have to assume someone here has put spacers. I want to see pictures of how they make the car look. From the measurements I took, 15mm in the front and 20mm in the rear should push the wheels close to the edge of the fender.

People don't use spacers very often as they aren't a great idea. Their main issue is excessive bearing wear because the load is moved out further. Same issues as with using deep offset (deep dished) wheels.

I found rims with less of an offset to widen my stance along with wider tires. But I have a 2003 so now much help

You can get spacers from 5mm on up but what you can use is dependent on the length of your lugs. If your studs aren't long enough to allow for desired spacers then your required to space out a larger amount which may be way more than you want.
