    Went to a mechanic in RawalPindi yesterday to get install spacers in Passo, X 2012. As i was not able to avoid passengers at back seat and travelling on a bumpy road. The Mechanic refused to do so, .
    According to him :

    Passo 2012 has more ground clearance than Passo 2013 and 2014, and than Prius, Vitz.
    Spacers will reduce road grip, which is already less in this car at high speeds.
    Not much damage without spacers, only scratches type on silencer.
    His suggestion was to install bigger tire size, which will also help in better road grip. And there will be minor effects on suspension, also after a long time.

    Your comments on his opinion.

    He is very right, get 14inch wheels with bigger tires like 175 or 165

    And if you are having lot of trouble of road clearance bec of bad area roads and heavy load in car then put 15inch wheels with suitable tires ur road clearance prob will go forever without effective road grip.
