Default wheel spacer in "A Stock"

I plan on running 3mm spacers on the rim for autoX . Does it have to be hubcentric to be safe?

No, cheap spacers are fine. However, I would recommend longer wheel studs.

You don't need hubcentric spacers. Just tighten your lugs properly and you'll be fine. If you're running a 3mm spacer it's likely that the wheel sits on the hub properly even with the spacer.

Like Duncan said, the wheel will still sit on the hub even with the 3mm spacer (it does for me)
