    I have 1.5 spacers with the oe beadlocks. spacers are hubcentric (as well as the wheels) and it is butter smooth. the tires are just to the edge of the fenders and looks the way it should. I can't believe everyone is so hot on methods....lugcentric chinese made crap

    Thank you. Flush is perfect. And I agree I’d rather run factory rims with spacers over a cast wheel any day.

    I'm trying to understand how you install these spacers. Do you need to trim the factory wheel studs so they clear the back of the wheel, or are they short enough that it's not an issue? I haven't pulled a wheel off to measure and I'm looking at 1.25" BORA spacers.

    The studs are ~1.55 inches long, so if your spacer is less than the thickness of that then the studs need to be "trimmed"

    The OEM wheels are also made in China, but they aren't lug centric. They are good quality but heavy and ugly. :biggrin:
