25mm spacers on 90mm studs

I'm currently running a 20mm spacer on the rear with 90mm racing studs. Does anybody know if I can run a 25mm? I'm trying to push the wheels out a little more. BTW I'm running OEM 359's.

Yes. 90 mm studs are good to 25 mm spacers.

You tell us. How much of the stud's threads are exposed with the 20mm spacer? Is it an amount greater than 5mm? I would want some threads always exposed for safety. Remember that the thickness of your lug nuts are a factor.

I would never want to run 25mm spacers but that's just me...

There is a lot of thread left. Definitely greater than 5mm.
