15mm Spacers - running rear only

Hi guys, considering getting 15mm spacers, mainly for the aesthetic, the rear seems significantly more recessed into the arch that on the front, so ideally would just want spacers for the rear axle.

Would this have a negative effect on handling etc?

I've used the search tool, and read through lots of threads but haven't seen a definitive answer yet myself.

Cheers,

I ran with rear spacers only for a while, including a full track day at Donington - the car will just understeer a little more at the grip limit.

No other issues.

Thanks for the response GT, luckily I found some for a good price so ended up biting the bullet for the front aswell, nice to know for the future though.. I did wonder about the understeer!
