    Spacers - How big with OE bolts?

    As per title, how thick can a spacer be, before you need to use longer bolts?

    You ideally need at least 6 full turns of the OE bolt in the hub flange to stop them from ripping out, so with a bit of measuring and maths you should be able to work out have wide a spacer you can get away with depending on which wheel you have
