Lets talk wheel spacers

Ok so I picked up a set of wheels off a Skyline and had them refurbed + new tyres.

Bolted them on the car but the offset is waaaay different and now they sit too far into the arches for my liking.

Question is, whats the biggest spacers you can fit on standard hub bolts? I'm using tuner nuts btw. If you look at the rears, theres way too much arch showing for me and it makes the car look narrow. Anyone know the largest I can use without needing new studs?

5mm is safe.
10mm is pushing it. But can be done.

If you dont get hub centric spacers make sure to center the spacer as much as possible before tightening the lugs. (if you dont you might feel some nasty wobble/vibrations.)

Anyways. No more than 10mm is my opinion.

I run 25mm with my Racing Harts since they are +55 offset, 25mm push them out to be +30 which I think is the perfect offset. The spacers are hubcentric with built in studs.

im currently doing spacers as well with my bbs meshies. i did 25mm in the rear and 15 mm in the front. im pretty sure i have the same adapter as above. only problem is with the 15mm the studs stick out. im looking into shorter ones. i think the studs stick out of the 25mm as well. im currently using universal 5mm spacers in the front and i have the 25mm ones on the rear. with my meshies the hubcentric ring doesnt fit. i have pics in my thread.

This.

However IMHO more offset would look even better. Go for 20mm, hub adapter/spacers will be needed or longer studs and spacers.

Form Follows Function. If it doesn't work, get it the f--- out.

Rather than get longer stud, get spacers that bolt onto the car that have additional stud built into them. This puts less strain on the hub bolts and allows you to put hmore aggressive spacers. However, the absolute best thing to do is simply buy wheels with the right size/offset from the start.
