Default wheel spacer???

Does anyone know what size wheel spacer is required to make the 16" snowflakes fit over the 4/2 pots? I thought I read somewhere it was 3 mm, but I want to be sure. The brakes/sus/wheel forum is useless unless you want a swaybar, or drop springs, or 18" rotas.

(buying new wheels is not an option right now. I already have almost $700 in this swap and cannot get the wheels at this point in time. I know spacers arent the best solution, but I will use longer studs to aid in fittiment)

Thanks.

if you are using longer studs use a 5mm spacer and call it good. they are alot easier to find than 3 mm. 3mm is what is needed though

youre fine with 5mm spacers on stock studs for the most part. You need 8-9 complete turns on the lug for it to hold the torque properly; this varies depending on what the wheel offset is and what spacer you use so there's no hard and fast rule about it.

And I think the snowflakes has the same clearance as the WRX stock wheels, so 3-5mm spacers are what you'll need.
