Default wheel spacers

anyone ever considered bumping out the stock ms3 wheels a bit? when the car is lowered even the slightest bit, the negative offset is really highlighted with the negative camber. it'd be nice to bring the offset out just 5, maybe even 10mm to improve the look and of course widen the track.

eibach makes the spacers; i just wish longer studs was as easy as it is with say...VW ; )

to be honest i don't even know if 5mm would require longer studs. some measurements would have to be done to see how much threading would take place with the spacers in place.

i've been thinking about this as well, with my coilovers im dropped 2" or so with a lot of camber, and it would look so much better if the stockers came out more. i might give it a try in a couple weeks..

I would want longer studs if I was putting in spacers....the stock ones are fairly short and I could only imagine what would happen if a wheel came off somehow b/c the lugs arent threaded onto the studs enough
