ok i got the the wheels/tires on last nite but there was a hiccup. the rear spacers went on fine but the front studs did stick out. so what i went to the parts store and got another one of those little spacers which i think are 5mm. this allowed me to have the fronts for now. when we got the the front ones my dad noticed that i was gonna need some new rotors because i have a lip around the edge and im gonna need new pads as well. we thought that since the rotors need to be replaced maybe we can swap the studs for some shorter ones while the hub was apart. think that is possible?

also i will have some before/after pics this evening. it was dark when i finished last nite and the rims need to be washed.

ok got my new rotors/pads for all 4 corners. started putting them on tonite. in the process we are cutting the studs to fit the 15mm spacers in the front. was only able to get 1 wheel done tonite (had to run a few extra errands). hopefully we can finish up the other 3 tomorrow.

it entirely depends on the offset of the wheels your using. without knowing that, there's no way to give you an answer.

I would get 20mm for the front. After I lowered my car the front wheels had some camber.

Why not even spacers front and rear?
