Question is. What is safer.. If using a smaller slip on spacer, is having longer lug bolts needed? Would you recommend a 10mm bolt on hub centric spacer over say, using a 10mm slip on hub centric with longer lug bolts installed? I’ve been having a hard time deciding on offsets for wheels, been sitting in front of the offset calculator for days now and scanning through manufacture spec sheets. I have a few wheels in mind and I have a base line car with a set of Meisters to go by and compare wheel specs/fitment too. I have been using a s15 with Meister 18x9 +22A front and 18x10 +30O rear to reference offset from, on this car the rear pokes a bit (about 4-5mm and has about -2 camber) and the front has about 2mm clearance between coils and wheel but fits ok in the guard (I would probably take off 2mm from the guard just for a bit more room) So, all the other wheels I have been comparing to these by using the offset calculator I seem to get one side to fit perfectly (rears mostly) whereas the front always results in poke or coil interference. My only option really is to use spacers in the front which I’m not too keen on.. I wouldn’t use anything less than a hub centric slip on but I’m looking at maybe a 10-12mm spacer in the front which is too big for slip on which leaves me with only the option of a 10mm hub centric bolt on... not happy but will have to do. Wheels I’m looking at are Work CR Kai/ultimate (new ones) front: 18x8.5 +30 (this is what needs spacer, sits about 14mm from inside of guard, and 2mm into the coilover) rear 18x9.5 +30 (perfect, fits just how I want it, inside the guard about 1mm short of flush)
