Matt Did you have to replace or cut wheel studs to run 20mm spacers with pp wheels?

I was about to buy some the other day but searched on Youtube and watched a few videos of people who had the same issue you're having. Too bad because the PP wheels look good when the offset is flush. Hopefully if all goes well I will be picking up a set of 20" Velgen VMB8's instead, trading off the PP wheels.

I want to know this too. The only reason I went with 25mm in the back was not to cut/replace my stock studs

To everyone askin if I had to cut...initially I thought NO. I bolted them up, looked like the clearances spots on the back of the wheels would clear the original studs so I bolted the wheels up and went on my merry way. Noticed a slight, and I mean SLIGHT vibration at 80mph and faster. Took a wheel off and saw that the original studs had left marks in the back of the wheels. So it looks like, in my case at least, the 20mm and PP wheels DO NOT clear the stock studs. It wont take much to make them clear and the stock studs are plenty long enough to shave/cut off the needed amount to make them clear without causing issues down the road if you were to go back to stock so Im gonna go that route some time this week.

Yeah it's been beaten to death already....the PP wheels CANNOT run 20mm spacers without shaving/cutting the lugs. I cut my rear lugs to install 20mm and then decided it wasn't worth it to do it to the front. Ended up with 25mm fronts and it worked out perfectly.

Post up a pic with your staggered spacer setup please.

I went ahead and cut mine last night. Was a pain but not impossible. DONT SIT YOUR KNEE DOWN ON THE HOT CUTOFF PIECES ON THE GROUND :lol:

Heres the fruits of my labor :cheers:







The rear is ever so slightly more tucked in than before, which Im happy about but the fronts are close to being too far in which is why Im debating picking up some 25mm for the front to try out. I took it out on the highway last night when I finished up to check for vibration and try to re-bed these squeaky assed brakes and didnt have any issues so all is well again!

Damn it! Now I don't know what to do. The 20's do look fine in the back but I wonder if i should lower the car and use that subframe alignment kit w/ the 25's and see what it looks like first.

I did end up buying 4 20mm's...so I could use the 20mm's on the back with the alignment kit and leave the 25's on the front.

25mm all the way around. IF I had to do it all over again, I would have worked harder to find 23mm for the rear only. Otherwise, I'm happy overall. I only wish the sidewalls didn't poke as much.
