ok so I'm test fiting my rims today and found some things.
First, the offset is 45 and i can't even get my finger in between the rim lip and my "shock"
so I don't know if my tire will hit.....
and I need some skinny lug nuts cause I bought some and won't fit the hole. (I know the size 12x1,5) Can I get these at a parts store or do I have to order?
I really needs some so info about how close it is,

thats pretty close...a small spacer could help you a ton

I want to try to stay away from a spacer..

a small spacer would help a ton, and you should be able to find some spline drive lug nuts that would fit in those holes, and you should be able to find those at any auto parts store

what if you rotat the rim 1 hole and put the big holes on the studs they look bigger then the other 4

why do you want to stay away from the spacer?
a small spacer will fix the problem cheap and fast.
if you cant find the lugs at a autoparts store, try a local tire and wheel shop.

I would like to keep the stress on the hub insted of the lugs, but I might look into a 3mm spacer if the tire rubs

There are many people that use spacers and don't have a lug problem at all. But again it is all up to your prerence. I would suggest getting gorilla lugnuts if you are wanting locking lugnuts or if it doesn't matter to you I am sure that any local auto parts store will carry lugnuts. That is an almost given. 3mm spacer won't make much of a difference as most of the stress will still be on the hub itself and very little taken on by the lugs. You may also need to get a shallow walled socket for those wheels since the space in those wheels looks extremely tight.

how wide are those rims? just kinda wondering?
04-16-2009, 10:24 AM
I don't think it will be a problem. Those of you with stock wheels (52mm) or 49mm offset SVT wheels take a look back there. There's not much visual/actual clearance and it tends to work out fine.

Thanks for all you help. The rims are 7.5 wide.
I'm going to put a tire on the rim and see if it rubs..
