Default 15mm spacer issue with oem wheels.

just posting this up as a FYI, for those people flushing out OEM wheels.

when using 15mm spacers on OEM wheels (in this case 08sti wheels), u might run into an issue with the stock studs sticking out too far past the spacer and seating on the back indents next to the axle stud holes

if you are planning to run spacers, to be safe id suggest 20mm anything below that you might have a issue

car. 05 sti







to make this work the stock studs would have to be trimmed down 1/4inch



here you can see where the stud hit the back space on wheel mating surface.



thanks for reading hope this helps someone in the future

Just take a hacksaw and saw your old studs to fit, you're already halfassing the rest of it, might as well go full retard!

as long as you are getting 4 full revolution on the lug nut to the stud you should be ok.
there's nothing wrong with running spacers.
But i know many ppl on nasioc would beg to differ so i'll end here.

I dont like 15mm adapter type spacers. It is on the border of not enough metal to have new studs in. I haven't heard of issues with them though. I've ran 25mm bolt on spacers with no issues for a long time. I would suggest running a slip on spacer and extended studs on anything below 15mm.

how is it any different than running a different offset rim? its the same damn thing just using stock rims... the turning scrub radius changes with after market wheels also, the load between after market wheels and spacers if the same offset when all done is EXACTLY the same. BIGGEST and I mean the only large issue with spacers is people forget they need to check the torque every so often. They can and will come loose.
Before you go off and just say im stupid, prove to me why spacers are bad, show me technical data. Otherwise bye.

sheesh those without suspension knowledge should really stay out of suspension threads.

am I the only one who has seen lots of studs on spacers break because they are crappy quality?

real way to do spacers= ARP stud extenders and a spacer, not an adapter spacer. that is just stupid.

but the west coast has more idiots per capita and therefore more idiots use spacers there and it is more likely that the idiots there will use the wrong ones in the wrong ways

logical to a fault, imo
