After reading through this and asking a few on here, I am safe to get 20mm spacers on my car then?

I have OEM factory 17 inch wheels and I checked the back of the rim and there are pockets or whatever would be the proper term behind them to accommodate spacer lugs or whichever.

I'm just curious is if I will have any issues with rubbing since it isn't lowered and I was told the lowest I could do was 20mm to not have to do any cutting or tinkering and they would just slide on my existing lugs, then slide the wheel on the spacer lugs, tighten them and I'd be good to go.

That goes to show how new I am to all of this.

Yep you can do 20mm spacers no problem. Since your not lowered you will be A-OK, even being pretty low I never scrape on my 20mm fronts, only my 25mm rears.

So if I'm understanding correctly, I will be ok with 20mm DRM f+r on the stock 215/50 R17?

anyone sell redrilled hubs so we can use different bolt pattern wheels? I would love some 5x114.3 bolt pattern. Lots of rims in that pattern.

Check with this guy:Aluminum and delrin steering rack bushings

He does good redrills on the earlier cars, can't remember what he can do for the MkIII's. (going larger is touchy, need to have adequate material left - can't go that large on earlier hubs I remember)

I'm running after market wheels with ET36 and the width is 6.5. I have Sportlines and I was wondering how wide I could go with spacers without rubbing too much? I'm running 215 tires currently. Maybe 225 in the future.

215x65x15r
15x6.5
Sportlines
How wide can I go?
