Knuckles to the rescue!! I did not know that.

Awesome. Thanks.

Guess I'll be going 5mm if I decide to go with spacers.

The H&R spacers come with new lugs and replacing them is easy. Just in case you didn't know...

Even the 5mm one? And do you mean studs?

This looks like the product. I'd be surprised if this thing came with new studs.







EDIT: Here's the product on Amazon, and it says it includes studs. Weird. 5mm is enough to justify new studs?

It's not really enough to justify lugs/studs, but I'm sure they include them as cheap lawsuit insurance. Zx3matt didn't replace them on his fronts.

The 5mm spacers don't need new studs on our cars, go any bigger and you will need them.
