i don't like spacers unless you're putting in longer studs as well...i would assume a 1/4" would be good enough, but you won't be flush

I've heard not to get them because they aren't hubcentric and can cause a vibration of not put on straight, also those put a lot more stress on the lugs, this Is just from what I've heard. I have no experience with wheel spacers but I'm looking for some as well

On AM the H&R spacers say they won't work on factory wheels but you're right, the 25mm won't work with stock wheels but the 35mm will fit both factory and aftermarket

What's the center bore on our axles because I'm looking at the 35mm ones and I'm not sure of the center bore thing on the axle. Or is that not important?
