Anyone give me a quick answer as to whether 5mm spacers need longer studs? I'm pretty sure they don't need the longer studs would just like conformation.

Thanks

The easy option Is 10mm longer studs , this way you can fit with out removing hubs , you only need to remove calipers , discs and one of the rear shoes per side . You can still use standard nuts too with out spacers , the perfect solution . I guess fitting is a couple of hours .

I have gone into longer studs and you can't just say you can run 5mm spacer or what ever with standard studs , it depends more on the type of nut you are using , if your on standard nuts then you have more leeway than with 60 degee taper nut on an aftermarket wheel ! I would never use spacers on standard studs and 60 degree taper nuts with out going with longer studs !!!

Thread bump. I want to fit 7.5mm slip-on spacers on aftermarket wheels. Seems like 5mm is fine, but is 7.5mm still ok? :eek:

As Mr Ralliart says - it really does depend on wheels and nuts.

When using an average aftermarket wheel with 60deg taper seats, I would definitely not go above 4mm spacer.

I also wouldn't go above 4mm without going hub-centric with spacers because that's the point above which you might have hub centring issues (depending on wheels and hub rings being used).

I've gone for a set of longer studs and using 6mm hub-centric spacers (from ebay) for my aftermarket 73.1mm centre bore wheels with 60deg nuts.
