wheel spacers and extended lug nuts


Recommended Posts

hey.. i'm thinking of putting on 20mm wheel spacers on my car.. however i think this will make it so that my lug nuts are too short to fit... if i get extended lug nuts would that work? or will i have to go through the process of extending the studs? anyone know?

the more expensive ones have those.. that are like 90 a pair and are like 1.5 inchs thick.. the ones i was looking at are more like 20 mm and are like 20 bucks and don't have the extra studs.. just holes to go over the studs that are there

the ones for 90 a pair are to change the lug pattern not a spacer.

the spacer your talking about would only have a benifit if you are using wheels that are to wide to fit with out the spacer. so if your will is 1" to wide you need a 1" spacer if it is only 20mm to wide then a 20mm spacer will work. if the wheels arent to wide then the spacer is pointless.

Wrong. They make spacers with studs in them that are just that....spacers. The bolt pattern will remain the same.

There's more than just getting a 1" spacer if your wheel is too wide. The width AND the backpacking both need to be factored in before using spacers.

Well if there are spacers with studs on them that keep the pattern the same that's new to me and I was just giving a general discription of what a wheel spacer is used for.
