Wheel spacers.

I would like to push my wheels out just a tad.
How much can or should I go? I did get new studs when I ordered the wheels, so don't really want another set.

4mm 6mm ??

5mm is about perfect.

Oh yeah, I happen to have a set I bought from someone on on here...

I think it was these...

I've not used them. They have lovingly sat on a bookshelf and dusted every 2 weeks, on Friday.

For 5 mm you will not need new lugs but anything thicker you will.

I run 5mm and it's just right.

I did it with rim offset.

Rim offset will come into play, and of course "the look" your after...
Dang Dave.O, that's a lot of spacer!! I'm not familiar with your coilover set up size wize but most coilovers get you more space not less.. Again your wheel offset may dictate that??
