Default Wheel Spacer Help

Hey guys I'm planning on throwing my wheels on within a few weeks but I wanted to have to throw spacers on with them so I can fit my center caps on. I have a set of ESM 004 BBS LM REPS 20x10 all around with 40 offset all around with 275 30 20 tires all around. The wheels centerbore is 73.1 and our Maximas hub is 66.1, therefore I had to get hub centric rings. Im going to get 3mm spacers in the front and 5 in the rear. But my question is that can I get non hub centric 3mm,5mm plate spacers and put my ring ontop of it? If not, do I get a 66.1 or 73.1 hub centric spacer? I'm a bit confused :/. Thanks in advance!!

With 20x10, you will need +33 offset to be flush. That's what I have on both my 6th gens. As for the spacers, get 5mm to be on the safe side, but I would get hub centric, lug pattern specific spacers to have better fitment. Even with that, you'll still be able to use your rings. I have that setup on my cars and no issues.

I wouldn't. I say that becuz if you use to non-hubcentric spacers, your rings will sink in and wheel won't even be sitting on them.

BUMP

I am new to spacers. I have 19x8.5 +35 offset wheels. What size spacers should i get to make the wheel look wider? I also had a local car mechanic take a look at the wheel and he said that having spacers will make the car less likely to shake when the car is going 65+ mph... HELP PLEASE.

You'll need like a 35mm spacer to sit flush with your fender

I'm no expert but isn't 0 flush? So if you have a +35 wheel and add a 35mm spacer that makes 0, right?

20x10 +33 sits flush
You have
20x8.5 +40
35mm= 1.4 inch

8.5+1.4=9.9 (pretty much 18x10)
You'll still have 7mm before you're flush so technically you'll need something like a 40mm spacer DEPENDING on how much of a stretch your tire is

and that sir is simple mathematics

You're thinking from a Z point of view. Offsets are different in the max.

20x? Up to 9" width needs +27 to +30 offset to be flush. If he has +35, he only needs a 5mm spacer. Ten mm spacer will run too aggressive, so best to stay with 5mm, so he won't need to extend studs, etc.

As for the 20x10, you are correct, a +33 offset will be flush.

OP: btw, you can't make a wheel look "wider" in any way you try. Your wheel is only 8.5", so even with a 245/35/20 tire, you still won't look wide. If you want wide, then get a 20x10 wheel.

Just an FYI
