First do you have brembos. Second they move the wheel outward away from the brakes they are typically steel plates that match your bolt pattern and you put them between the wheel and brake.

If you do not have brembos you will not need spacers.

its only saying you will need wheel spacers between the wheels and brakes if you have brembo or after market brakes.

Brembo's (as optioned on the track pack GT's) stick out farther so you need rims that spokes wont hit the caliper, so if they wont clear spacers are required.

If you ever look at the factory wheels they are VERY VERY close to hitting the brembo calipers.
