What exactly do spacers do?

I want to get some new rims xxr 17x8.25 with a offset of +35. If i got 10mm spacers it would make the offset +25? If i understand correctly so far. Do i need the spacers. Will i rub with or without them. My suspension is completely stock right now but i do plan on lowering like 1.5-2 ins. The dimensions of rims and tires has been really confusing me lol i'm also kind of stupid so please explain as thoroughly as you can. Thank you much appreciated. Also if i do end up getting spacer ill have to get longer studs right?

Re: What exactly do spacers do?

Just because you have a 100mm spacer on the car, the wheel offset will not change.
All the spacer does is give you more clearance between the wheel and the studs.
