Default Is this thickness too much for my stud... thats what she said!


I bought these spacers & was wondering if they would leave enough threads for my lugs to safely use. Is there more exposed thread for the rear lugs than front? I really like the look of the extension but at the end of the day this serves as transportation for my family.
I uploaded a pic the spacer.

So there's nobody with an opinion on this?

Generally you should always run extended studs with spacers

Thanks Brandon. That's a lot of work for not enough benefit imo. I'll probably leave the rear spacers on, but stresses from turns up front worries me enough to pass.

If you did some research you would find the max recommended spacer thickness with stock studs is 5mm. JBR sells hubcentric 5mm spacers which is what you should be using. Anything thicker and the hub on your wheel will be recessed in the spacer. Not good.
