What kind of rims?

are they drilled for 5holes or 10?

If they are drilled for 10 holes, I woul suggest buying a spacer that bolts on to your OEM hubs. This way you 10mm spacers and non brembo rims are relatively pnp.

stock is 45mm and you went with 35mm? or they are 80mm? Be sure to pick up open ended lugs if thats the case.

according to this stock is 41.50. hopefully the extra 3.5mm will make a difference?

return them and pick up either nismo 60mm or arp 80mm studs. better yet, sell the wheels and find a set that's wider with a lower offset since that's what you're looking for!

the minimum is 10mm (I have a set) HR Auto has them (vendor here). I do not know how much clearance you need. Assuming that your rimes are 45-50 offset now it will lower them to about 30-35. That will mean you will need to have your fenders pulled and rolled. It might be cheaper to get different rims.

10mm bolt-on spacers will not work because they are not wide enough to accommodate the length of the stud coming out of the hub and the required lug nut without hitting the backside of the wheel. if you want to run a set of 10mm spacers, buy the extended nismo 60mm or arp 80mm studs and get them pressed in.

i believe the minimum width for a bolt-on spacer is 25mm.

This is both true and otherwise. Both my Rota SVN's and Gramlights are drilled for 5 lugs at 5x144.3 and a set of dummy holes. My lug bolts pass into these without protruding into the face of rim. Meaning they are still in the holes in the backplate of the rim.


You cant even see the end of the lug bolts, but they are in there.

You can buy 10mm spacers here:http://www.evasivemotorsports.com/Me...de=KICS-5010W3

I bought mine from another vendor, because these guys were out of stock.

well the ichiba studs were long enough. doesnt mean that the whole ordeal wasnt plagued with problems. the studs were too big for oem lugs. had to use muteki's from my old nissan i had laying around. then after fitting the 18x7.5 +50 wheels with the 10mm spacer they're right passed the fender. damn wagon fenders!!! why couldnt these be 18x8 ARGGGGGG
