Those are different - the longer studs are part of the spacer. The one I'm buying is a regular spacer that includes longer studs to replace the stock studs on the hub. I'll be ordering it next week not sure when I'll install it. Probably the week of July 4th.

I was also thinking about getting those same 10 mm spacers. With the sGT stock wheels being +50, would it make more sense to get like a 15 mm spacer?

I guess I could, but that would mean I would need to get 10mm for the front (to keep the offset same front/back) and I'm not going to spend extra to put longer studs on all 4 corners. Besides, I might get H&R springs to replace the Eibachs and I don't want to push the wheels out too far as to rub the rear fender lip.


(rear wheels are sunken in 5mm compared to the front. That's how Mazda designed it.)

Please take the plunge first, and post pics of your spacers lol. Depending on how good your car looks, I'll get them too

I have stock 16s which are awesome for daily, want want them to flush with my fenders. No plans on lowering the car since I want to be able to drive in light snow and go over speed bumps without going sideways or caring. I may just do 7mm spacers all around and call it a day...not sure where I can find them tho.

My car is lowered about 1.2" with Eibach springs and I have yet to scrape on any speedbump ever, or get stuck in snow. The only thing that has changed is that the front bumper cant clear the cement curbs in parking lots.
