Wheel spacers?

Looking at getting wheel spacers for my 96, I foun some not used on kijiji and was wondering if they would fit. Here's the specs


Thickness - 30mm
Thread pitch 12x1.5
Hub bore around 70mm? (Rough measurement)
Bolt pattern 5x114.3
Non hub centric

Would those work? If not what would I need, not really looking to buy brand new from A.M.

Oh ok, is everything else right though? The sizes and stuff? Cause it's about a 45 minute drive to get them. So I wanna be sure they will fit, then I can try them on to see if they stance too far out

Yea everything seems right. But here's a 20 mm I had and look how thick it is. Actually it was 25 so not that far off but pretty thick

Oh wow ya that's thick, but the rims I'm looking at getting hVe only 225/45 on the back, and I'm unsure of the offset but I guessing it will be low. The rims I have now are the 96-98 gt rims. And they are on 235/45/17. So I think I'd be ok, because there is quite a gap between the fender and tire.

30mm is pushing it, I know guys on my old forum for g's ran up to 35/38mm but for long not sure. Also wears on other parts as well due to added stress.

So you would recommend 15 like vonomouz said?

You'll need new studs if ya go 15 no? I believe the spacers that bolt onto the hub are 25mm or larger. I know some other dude on the Mach 1 forum runs 25's with no issues. As a matter of fact he is putting down over 500 at the wheels and doesnt have any issues

Hmm so if I went with 30mm wheel spacers on rims with a 40 offset I'll need new studs?
