    Optimal Spacer Sizes

    So what would you folks recommend when it comes to spacer size with stock 135 wheels? I've heard 10mm front and 12mm rear works out pretty well. Any thoughts?

    I've also heard from various Mafiosos that 12 mm front & 10 mm rear works well. I plan to start out trying that then swapping (10 front, 12 rear) if necessary.

    I'm not a ZHP, but I'm on wheel studs. I run Vorshlag Studs and nuts

    Stupid fast tire changes.

    For someone like me, I can change tires in 15 minutes (that includes getting the car in the air, tires out...etc).

    With the wheel studs, you can just throw the tire on the studs, get one nut on the car. Once that one nut on the car, the whole wheel centers and you can zip through the other 4.

    10F/12R for me. Doesn't seem too bad. I plan on trying 12F/15R in the spring if I don't get new wheels

    I run 12F/15R and I think it is about perfect. I don't know your suspension setup, but if you're on stock it should be fine.

    I would go with TMS spacers, that way you can get the black lugs.
