Thinking about wheel spacers??

My brother tells me that in order to have wheel spacers i would need to have lug extensions...is this true?? I'm only going for 25mm all around with Hubcentric spacers by eibach i heard good reviews about them. Please let me know if you actually need lug extensions or not im tired of it looking like this :(

25mm is a pretty hefty amount to space out. That's taking away 25mm of offset so if your wheels are +45 now they'll be down to +20, very low. You will have to pull and roll the fenders to clear the wheels depending on how low you are.

I would look into hub centric spacers with studs already pressed in, such as these >>>Ichiba V2 wheel spacers 20mm

well if you do extended studs you can change up the offset with diff spacers .. if you buy bolt on spacers you may have to cut your factory studs down ( depending on the back of your wheel ) if you use bolt on spacers your stuck with that offset ( most of the time your factory studs need to be cut shorter with aftermarket wheels ) if you do extended studs you have the option of changing the offset with a diff spacer size .. i decided to go with extended studs on my set up .. blackworks makes studs that have the same tensile strength as arp for less .. check em out .. whatever you decide post up some pics when you get it done .. clean looking 4th gen btw ..

Did you have to press out the bearings to insert the new studs? That's the main reason I decided against extended studs and spacers.

Re: Thinking about wheel spacers??

no just pull the hubs the outer race will come with the hub not the whole bearing .. the rears were a little easier you undo the nut and give the hub a little tap with a hammer and it will come off .. then you beat the old ones out and press the new ones in .. the fronts a little more a pita .. you need a slide hammer to get the hubs out .. despite what people will tell you you do not need to replace the bearings either ... ive done a lot of broken studs / pulled hubs in my time and if you tighten everything back up to spec no issues ..

Re: Thinking about wheel spacers??

I dropped them on Tein S Tech which is only 1.5" drop in the front and 1.2" drop in the back. Its not too low, not too high. Thing is we measured the gap between the wheel and the fender and it was roughly an inch but im worried it would rub. So do u think getting 20mm would be just right without having to extend the lugs? Im leaving my stock wheels on for a while.

Just as some people here. I got this idea from one of my workmates and I'm also looking at the H/R "DRS" 15mm spacers with the studs extended. Actually got my OEM nsx rims however they are just 5mm less of which are more aggresive than the OEM s2000 rims 15" and guess would come out with the best results having 15mm spacer to gain 10mm. Supposed i was planning to have them from store but i guess from folks who have more idea about this. i got the link and as much as possible i want like this one:Wheel spacers
