Re: Can I run 8mm spacers in the rear without buying longer lugs? (nugatory)

Definitely not. I am running 5mm spacers and I had to purchase new lugs. Besides is your life and the life of your car really not worth 10 new lug bolts? It is a real safety issue.

Don't put spacers on your car. I'm removing all mine for safety reasons.
Right now I've got 15 mm spacers on the rears, and handling is much worse, especially at speeds at and over 80 mph. Car seems to behave like it loses its track. 14 mm greater front track is for a reason in our cars.

I've heard this is true, but then I see cars like Ventodan's and cosmic's and they never seem to have a problem with their extremely spaced out wheels.
So I'm just gonna trust them.
