Since putting 37 inch tires on seems to be an issue, I was planning on using wheel spacers with 35 inch tires, not 37 inch.

I would try to go with a 1.5". Call Lenny over at Motorsport Tech and see if 1.5" will work or if the studs are too long. I'm only saying 1.5" cause 2" is quite a bit and you may run into slight issues even with a 35". He gets pretty busy over there so just a pre-warning you might be on hold for a while. 775-351-1000

I broke down and gave him a call and ordered 1.5 inch BORA wheel spacers. I will post pics and give a review when I get them installed. I will be running these with my stock tires and rims.

Nice!! He makes really high quality spacers and adapters. I think the 1.5" was the way to go.

I am VERY VERY VERY happy with my +1mm offset wheel. Gives me about 1.5" of tire outside of the wheel well.

My wheels stick out 1.1" more than the stock wheels. I wouldn't want them to stick out any further. My paint will probably take a beating this winter.

Aren't you the guy complaining about vibration? Just wondering...

Just vibration in the gas pedal which I think is caused by an issue with the torque converter, but the dealership says it is an issue with harmonic vibration from the exhaust. Everything else is rock solid.
