Longer studs won't space your wheels out. Where the back of the wheel butts up against the hub is how you get spacing. The spacers on American muscle is what I would do ifi had stock wheels or stock back spacing.

Longer studs are only meant for the tradition type of spacer. That's what I'm using on mine and I will never go through that much of a hassle again.

Longer studs are more dangerous... Your distributing the weight of the car farther out on the stud which they will break easier. I did mine in February and one if them already broke. There is a lip that the wheel sits on and if you do studs and disk spacers that lip is not there.

Also if you go too far out you will cut your tire unless you roll the fender
