Can you post closer pictures of the center cap location. You might not need spacers.

10 or 15 would be good. they dont make 12, its either 5, 10, 20, 25, etc. a 15 will make it sit pretty flush with the fender.


I currentl own the ichiba v2 15mm bolt on spacers and now recently the 10mm ones with extended studs. I love them

5mm would allow the center cap. 15 will give it the more flush look but you would probably want to lower it first to see where it will sit and if you need to roll the fender.

Here are a couple of pictures. I'm certain I need spacers as the centercaps won't go on. They're expensive huh? I thought it was like $100 for all 4.

Is it hard to replace the studs? Do you just pound out the old ones and put in the new ones?

Default Re: Need Advice On Spacers

Bump. Finally going to buy spacers. I need to know what the best offset for a 19x8.5 rim would be? Tires are 235/45/19's and offset is currently 45. I'm looking for a flush look. Should I get a 20mm for the rear and 15mm for the front??

Any help would be appreciated.

I would lower it first before you go all out with the spacers. If you go too big before you lower you might run into rubbing issues.

You're right. I just have the rims sitting though. Sucks to be sitting on new tires. I thought about selling the rims, but have gotten low offers. If I put them on my car and wear out those tires then I'll sell them for their lowball offers and it saves the tires on my stockers.
