    Spacers

    Ive looked for info on this so please dont kill me.Im broke and cannot afford to buy wider rims right now but id like to get the wheels at lease flush with the fenders. Has anyone used them? If so what size and lug pattern did you use as well as the brand? Is there anything i need to be careful of when buying/installing them?My car is a 2018 SP.

    5x115 is the Bolt pattern. Get rings that are Hub centric if you go over 7mm. Which is about 1/4in. There is nothing wrong with doing some small spacers. I've used this company before. Wheel Adapters, Wheel Spacers, Hub Rings, and much more! | Motorsport Tech

    ^^^^ This is the company I've bought all my spacers from. I wouldn't go more than 5-7mm. If you do you'll need to put extended studs in.

    Spacer use is fine, as long as done safely; the hard and fast rule is that the lug nuts must engage the 14mm x 1.5mkm wheel studs at least their diameter. This means the lug nuts must engage at least 14mm of the wheel stud's thread structure. Otherwise, you need to use longer wheel studs.

    Hub-centric rings are a complete waste of time, as it is the 60 degree mating conical sections of the lug nuts that engages the same angled pockets within the wheels themselves. This centers the wheels - nothing else.

    EDIT; corrected diameter, thanks to Punisher

    I get to correct Simon!! 🤣🤣🤣 Y'all write this down because it NEVER happens.

    They're 14mmx1.5 studs lol (I know it was a typo, but you did it more than once Spacers)

    Same rule applies though, if you can't get 7 full turns of the lug nut BEFORE torque, don't to it. The last thing you want is lug nuts backing off.

    Just as in business, I have an expectation of my counterparts to point out factual errors to prevent misleading others. Your zeal is duly noted :^D

    I used these for the back wheels. Planning on going to a wider wheel in the fall. They fit perfect.
