Solution to wheel spacers!!

Just figured i would post if anyone needs to know. On my 01 the wheels wouldnt clear the calipers so all we did is get 12 regular screw washers and put them over each lug and it clears just fine. there just regular size like maybe 1/16 thick i would say. it would save someone money on adapters.

Thast a bad idea. Useing washers greatly reduces the mounting surface area, and can lead to the wheels shifting when brakeing. This can lead to the studs breaking off, and this:

Yeah...That's kinda what I was thinking. I would be worried about insufficient threads to grab well and the extra pressures could make the lug nuts back off...but the decreased surface area thing makes sense too...
