I heard that it's not just a spacer stuck between the wheel and the rotor, but you'll need the longer bolt threads that come in a kit in order to insure safety. Also, gathered that spacers are dangerous if used incorrectly. There are spacers that you can buy that are universal and those are a big no no. The ones you can see in that picture are the correct style which come in two styles, hub-centric and lug-centric. Hub-centrics are the safest of them all since they eliminate any vibration that could loosen the bolts.

The way those spacers attach is the best way to run a large spacer. They bolt to the stock lugs, and have their own studs to attach the wheel with. You can use a regular spacer, but it will put more stress on the studs. If going that route, I wouldn't use much more than a 8mm spacer.

Probably for everyday driving not big of a deal, but I wouldn't use such a setup if doing any kind of weekend warrior stuff like I will be doing.. IMO it would be better to jsut get the correct offset wheels... that's just me though. :)
+1...........But, then again, I'm one a the few people that likes the factory wheels good enough to run them for street use. There will definately be a 2nd 3pc forged set w/the right offsets for track use that will have tires designed more for racing. Not to mention, a pair w/slicks mounted just for drag strip days. I need 10 wheels & tires...LoL

Your studs really aren't the problem with larger spacers like these, its your wheel bearings. Expect to be replacing them sooner because of the extra rotational weight.
Wheel bearings definately will take on some added stress from the spacers, another reason to just get offset wheels.. but I understand why people go the spacer route, cheaper overall and if done right relatively safe...

Tufast, I hope you have a large shed/barn for all the parts coming off your stocker!!! Now you are up to 2.5 sets of wheels. NASCAR ain't got nothing on you on track day!!! You are going to need to invest in a serious car trailer just to get all your stuff to the track. I hope you have clearance for this project from the in house accountant. :))

I'm the house accountant, 39 yrs old, single, never married, & no kids. This gives me alot of leeway. But, I figure on the autoX track days, I'll switch the wheels/tires out prior to leaving the house if I'm planning on driving to the track. This will be ok since the tires I plan on running will be street legal (probably barely though) & I won't be going on bad weather days anyway. As for the drag strip, the rears will have to be brought in seperately in a P/U & switched out there at the track or the car just trailered in. Since I own a car hauler & have access to a 01' Dodge Ram 2500 turbodiesel P/U (my pops), I will most likely trailer the thing in anytime I plan on spending time at any track.

I know it sounds like I dream big & my aspirations may seem a little far-fetched for some of you. But, I attribute this to mid-life crisis or at least that sounds like a good enough reason to spend a ridiculous amount of money on such a hobbie. I'm not sure how much of all this will become reality or how long it will take. All I know is that I'm in no rush & that I've almost always gotten what I want. It's never been given to me, but I'm usually willing to do what ever it takes to get it. Besides there's always got to be that one asshole that just takes things a little too far. Consider me him...:evilgrin:

I run what I brung but other's in the local car club who are more "serious" will bring in separate wheels/tires. An idea I really like is put a hitch on the car and have a small trailer that is just big enough to fit the wheels/tires and miscellaneous tools (jacks, impact gun, etc). You prep the car at the track and when yer done you put the DD stuff back on. I may do this myself if there is space and room under the BK to put a small hidden hitch on.

Ah, the good old days. Free to roam and do what you want. Good for you. Looking forward to seeing you set some records at the track.
