The bottom of the strut / knuckle hole is larger from 05.5-11. The 00-05 is smaller so the omni kit spacers make it possible to swap to the bigger size. Can't fit it in the other way unless you use 05.5+ knuckles.

Ok thanks for the info! That makes me think it may be possible if I swap to 05.5+ knuckles... which is possible. I'm sure they're cheap at pullapart. But my shmancy new wheel bearings are in the ones on my car now... ugh. lol I'll probably just pass on it for now. I reaaaaaaaally need to save monies for a wedding and house and whatnot. As long as my car lasts, she'll be lower some day.

Thanks! Funny how that happens, I didn't want a big meaty tire, but I didn't want a tiny sidewall that would blowout on a pothole. Everyone I talked to recommended a 45 series tire. I wanted 195/45/16's, but they were about $200 more total than the 205/45/16's that I went with. It wasn't really worth the extra money to me. If these wheels were 16x8 the look would be perfect. (They're 16x7.5). But I've been really happy with these tires so far!
