I found 3mm hub centric spacers. Pretty hard to find but allowed the camber to stay more neutral.

How difficult is it to replace the studs?

custom 5mm spacers (http://www.motorsport-tech.com/wheel_spacers.html - they'll mill you 3mms too!) came with the wheel set so i used those. I knew it was more than i needed but i had them and didnt mind the idea of the extra clearance. I also knew i was increasing camber so that was not an issue either and i could adjust as needed later with the plates.

studs became a requirement due to the 5mm spacers. I could have gotten away without them on the 3mm spacers but i figured i should just get it all done. I had my mechanic do it all since it was so much work (fender roll, install coils, install LCAs/trailing arms, studs, set up, etc) and i dont have a garage or enough spare time to get it done reasonably as the car is my DD.

i ended up buying a 2nd set of hubs to have the studs installed into and then put on the car. It saved us from the efforts of extracting the old studs and installing the ARPs. It is definitely the more expensive route (almost $600 for new OEM hubs) but it was easier, took less labor time and now i have a spare set of hubs (14k miles on them) that i can do whatever i want with.

My understanding on replacing the studs is it is basically a 1 day job, less if you or someone helping you has done it before. I got a few quotes to do the work and they started at 5 hours of labor. The fronts are easier than the back. There is a method laid out in the forums where you can do the rears through a bolt hole one at a time but you have to grind down the head of the studs a bit to fit it through the hole. Call it a moderate job, nothing too tough but time consuming, repetitive, etc.

^^ Judging by the 18x9.5 +38 rpf1s/ +40 nto3 needing 10mm spacers with brembos and the 5x114 kojins coming with a +30 offset, I'm going to guess they most likely wont...

I'd pm this person to see how much room they have...

I've looked at these for my 14. I assume they fit your car no problem. Has anyone run these on the 11 and up hatch
