Question Eibach Wheel spacer kit - link provided

I was looking at the romor of ARP longer and stronger studs and was pointed in the direction of Eibach wheel spacer kit. So I was interested in see what you guys thought about this.

I have a 02 wagon and was starting to worry I did not have the proper amount of threads with 5mm spacers. I currently have volk se37 and stoptech from brakes. They just clear with out spacers but then the hub flexes and ops crunch caliper.

Here is the link of what I found.

I have 225 wide tires. currently runing kumho esta mx. The rub with to much weight in the rear. How big of spacers do you suggest?
thanx

Your message makes it appear that you are looking to use spacers to cure a tire rub problem. You might want to clarify what you're asking, since a spacer will make rubbing worse.
