Hi guys!
I would like to know if it's correct to put 5mm spacers on the stock stud?
How many turns do I need to get with the nuts if I want to be safe?

Thank you!

It all comes down to opinion and honestly it differs from person to person.

I can't be held responsible if something happens to you, your car or wheels if you use spacers but my rule of thumb I use personally is anything over 8mm spacers require extended studs. I think I'd use 5mm spacers on my wheels if I ever needed to push them out just a little more but I'm happy with how my aftermarket wheels sit.

Happy modding!

Perfect I'm pretty sure 5mm will be ok with stock studs to!
I'm gonna give a try and look how much turns I have with the nuts.
Thanks for your reply!
