    It all depends on the rims you have, what kind of look and fitment you are going for, if you have rolled your fenders, the easiest way is to measure it yourself.

    I've got the 5mm spacer, you can use them on most wheels with stock studs.

    If you're going to run spacers wider than 5mm you need longer studs or hub adapters.

    The rule of thumb is the lug nut must cover as many threads as the thickness of the stud. In our case the stud is 12mm, so your lug nut needs to be tightened at least 12mm down, or since it's 1.5mm/thread, 12mm/(1.5mm/thread) = 8 lug nut turns.

    In summary, if you can do 8 turns with your lug nut, you are good with whatever spacer.

    Also hubcentric spacers are a great idea.

    More for the rear because you need to go wider in the rear to get flush. My front was no spacer at +38mm at the show.

    Yea it's totally possible to score without them but it's always a good idea to use them.
