put on some 15mm Squirrelly hubcentric spacers via Squirrelly Hubcentric Wheel Spacers Adapters 5x114.3 / 12x1.5 / 67.1mm Center Bore / 15mm Thick (4 Pack)
i have to cut the original studs down a bit maybe 4mm or so then i can get the wheel to sit flush against the hub.. currently resting on the old studs
i only work half a mile away so i dont have to worry too much about driving until i get it done
will get some pics once i shorten them down and have it sitting fine
thinking of using a hacksaw..

also got some cheap 1080p dash cam on group on (had a coupon), need a memory card for it lol

Or you could knock the studs out of those spacers and fit longer studs to your hubs which would then pass through the spacer.

That's exactly what I did. I too got squirrelly spacers, but mine are 20mm. But they have possibly the worst brand name I've ever heard. Why would anyone want "squirrelly" wheel spacers. Just sounds dangerous haha.

i was thinking of doing that but i cba to do all that crap honestly lol
studs are cheap i can always replace em anyway if i have to

i know, i was thinking that the entire time i was looking up info about them lol
i have 5mm hubcentric spacers that i could add ontop of the 15mm, but im sure its a bit dangerous lol

and ordered some carbon fiber wrap for my interior pieces :D

I think you should find wheels before you get spacers, those will be too big if you are running an 8" wide wheel. Unless you cut and pull the fenders and get a camber kit.

So ive shaved my oem studs down so that my wheel can align on the hub and it sits much more flush with the fender now
some rubbing when i hit bumps/potholes (hawaii has so many friggin potholes) but it looks great
lip was also mounted, looks MEANN
