    Is it ok if I put 1.5 inch spacers on the rear tires of my ‘19 bullitt to give it that mean muscle car look.

    Not without longer studs. Not sure if tires would still be under fenders

    Looks great! What’s so bad about being past the wheel well?

    Unless you tilt them inward like some punk Civic ricer, your tire with bang into the fender and cut into the tire or damage the fender itself.

    Many recommend putting blue loc tite on the studs so I’m wondering if you’d still be able to retorque them with the loc tite on. Anyone know how that works?

    Would you have to take the lug nuts off every time and reapply loc tite in order to retorque them? Or could you just retorque the lug nut with the loc tite still on it

    old loctite is useless. You have to chase the threads to get anything meaningful out of a torque wrench. That said torque to spec and forget the locktite. What morons are suggesting to locktite lug nuts?

    Just as an FYI, 52mm is OVER 2 INCHES :D. 1 inch = 25.4 mm.

    Thanks for the help, would you recommend putting anti seize between the hub and the spacer?

    I assume you're worried about corrosion between the steel hub and AL in salty air? Is your spacer raw or is it powdercoated? If latter, no need. If former, rattle-can it lightly or thin coat of wheel grease. But most people would just ignore the problem and take a red Brillo pad to it from time to time when you have the wheels off.

    Do NOT put grease between the wheel mounting face and your spacer.

    This is not functional at all and I really really don't want to be mean but this is gross and looks like a skateboard. Listen to aftermarket companies that make spacers for track purposes. Steeda recommends 1' front and 20mm rear. and this is what it looks like on my car. I didn't use locktite or whatever I just used my tq wrench and tightened them to 150 pounds.
