you have to remember that the size of the spacer is the amount of threading you are removing from the lugs being able to hold on to the rim.

i am just relaying what i have been told. i had thought about spacers, and would only do them if you get rims with too much offset (or little, depending on how you think about it) and you get rubbing issues
i suppose i can wait on that and maybe just get offset wheels. i was just wondering because i want everything to be flush, and i just need another 1/2" to make it flush with the fenders.
