All- I'm running 5mm Turner spacers on the front and all I have is a sliver of hub to mount my wheels on due to my bbs wheels having a little lip on their mounting points. The ride is silky smooth all the way up to 100.

Is this safe?

It's not ideal but shouldn't be an issue. The little lip doesn't bear weight once the wheel bolts are torqued to spec

^ good to know. Thanks for the help. The spacers might have to go after all as I'm getting some serious rubbing up front with my 255/35/19 tires.

Try hub extenders. Turner used to sell them before it was bought by ECS. Maybe ECS sells them or another company. They are what you use when using a spacer too small to support a built in hub extender (generally considered a spacer less than 12mm). Usually with 5mm or less spacers you donít need anything, but if combining with wheels that have steel inserts that donít go all the way through line yours, I would recommend using them.

I honestly don't think you need spacers with a setup like this. Try lowering the car and it will be perfect with some negative camber. Skip the spacers, diminishing returns and sacrifice handling for the sake of looks.

In the pic above I'm using 5mm front and 12mm rear spacers. Without spacers the wheels are way too sunk in IMO.

The problem is stock ride height, who knows revisit with spacers after you lower the car and you might not need the spacers anymore.
