When does a spacer need longer studs

I know logic says anytime you use a spacer use longer studs so PLEASE don't chime in to just tell me that again. I'm only looking at 5-8mm(less to just over 1/4"). What I've found on the web says if you can't get 5-8 full turns of thread on the studs then you need longer, something tells me that this isn't an issue with a spacer this small but I have not laid my hands on them and fit them yet.

Is anyone running spacers this small and if so did you actually need / use longer studs?

a .2" longer stud seems rediculous

People with practical experience only please.......generic opinions not welcomed.

ALWAYS!

Unless spacer comes with studs already.


The ones I got came with the studs in them so I did not need to get longer studs. But no matter how thin is the spacer you should always get longer studs.

Save $ on studs.............Lose $ on fixing your car and maybe even more when your wheel falls of on the freeway.

Insurance company finds out you had spacers and your studs were too short..........You are **** out of luck getting your claims covered.

Damn, and I even said PLEASE. Thats exactly what I didn't want.........I know that Huge spacers come with longer studs and I know that ALL companies tell you to buy longer studs but we are talking about roughly 2.5 bolt threads at 5mm. Again........just people running them that small or that have run them that small please!!!!!!!!!!!

WTF you need 5mm of spacer for?


Just deflate your tire a bit and you get the same effect.

Or actually buy a fatter tire next time.

Moving the wheel skippy, my tire size is fine, but thanks for another great and informative post. Now go do something useful like self mutilation as an attention getter instead of my post.

Ive got 5mm spacers on. I def. recommend to install longer studs whenever going the spacer route. Joker is right. you dont want any issues when driving highway speeds...

5mm or less, you'll be ok. Just check your lugs once in awhile. Anything over that, you def want longer studs. So if you go 8mm, yes you want longer studs. Might as well just get 10mm spacers with built-in studs.

Just keep in mind that even 5mm spacers come with extended studs, which are more than 5mm longer than stock. I never used them, but I did keep a torque wrench in the trunk and tried to check all my lugs at least 1-2 times a week.

I realize that "some" do, but most actually don't. Hence my original question. I'm not ordering any longer studs and I'll just see if they workout. Which is exactly where I was before I started this thread.

I am running H&R spacers 5mm all around with extended studs. Why? Because I need them for the front.

For the back I could have gone without the long bolts but I wanted to have the same setup all around.

I def needed the longer studs - without it was tooo risky!
