Have built at least 25 from the ground up since I began play with cars in the early 60ís. I presently own 6 cars three of which are Subaruís, two of which are STIís, and one of which is putting more than 400HP to the ground, yet I would still not claim to be a GURU
Congrats on your Cyber Preaching and all that glory.... bottom line... spacers + OE studs = short wheel stud engagement.
Not busting you personally, but your post is just a personal ego stroke.. has nothing to do with the question...
to the OP: IF (big IF) you decide on spacers... <ugh>
the standard is that the lug nut/bolt must ENGAGE 1/2 the diamater of the stud or hole its attached too... SO: If you add a 1/4" spacer... as long as the lug nut screws down more than 1/2 the length of the stud/hole its going into.... you are fine....
This is the same argument for stretching a 225 profile tire on a 10" rim to make a car "hella frush"
honestly... stupid is, as stupid does in the case of a post like this...You have made up your mind on WHAT you WANT to do... You just want someone to tell you its ok...
