Thank you for your response.

Do I need new wheel nuts for this spacer or I can just reuse the OEM ones?

You can re-use stock lug nuts. Also, one customer using these wheels said the 3mm spacer was too tight, like less than 1.0mm clearance, so he used a 5mm spacer.

Hello everyone. This is an amazing thread! I'm in need of MUCH help!! I have a Type RA. Does anyone know the paint code for the 2018 Type RA? Or anything close to it. I know there's bbs gk1 but I can't find any consistent photos.

I made the mistake of powder coating these already perfect rims. I choose yellow gold which came out greenish and now have walts gold with clear vision. While walts gold is a great color it is much darker than OEM. I got samples of other powders and seen dozens of different variations and nothing seems close to the Type RA. Any help with be greatly appreciated!!.
