Default spacers

hmm. the spacers idea was in my head, im kinda skeptical about it, anotherguy was saying that his wheels would get loose after using a 5mm spacer on the street and it made his lugs get loose all teh time and trash his studs. ive had bad luck with lugs / studs in the past, so i choose to clearance the hat on my rer strut with a dremmel. 2.5mm or so mab less cleared it. im guessing it rubbs ocassionaly, but i havnt checked yet

im running 225/45/17 azenis, the front seems okay fiting, i rolled the inner lip of the rears just incase it rubbbs. im runnign sti v6 suspension. i think the only surefire way to clearthe rears would be to run a coil-over. or get a ground control sleeve type thing and chop away the bell hat for clearance.

safir - have u ran the spacer on the street? id like to run it, but im skeptical about the saftey - u going to be at the 4/13 scca autoX?
