you have to be careful with wheel spacers.
they can work, but put more stress on the hubs. esp if you get big ones..
.5" and you might want to get longer lug studs. some people don't have issues.. some do. it just all depends.

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
