so fa so good john, i had a set of them on my previous rims as well for 3 years also with no problems, if you dont have them right know with the new rims i highly suggest you dont drive without them, its very unsafe and theres no way they run true if its just centered right know with the bolts.

eh john, i notice you attach a pic on your posts, if you right click on the image you posted click on properties and it will tell you the location of the pic. then go into your user cp and plug that location in the signature box with..

[ img ] at the front and [ /img ] at the back of it with no spaces in between

hope this helps, you wont have to attach a pic every time

The reason he can't run large spacers and you can is because of his lack of negative camber.

I ran 18" 42mm wheels with 1" spacers and A LOT of negative camber with no problems.

The width of the wheel comes into account here also.

I just purchased some 19" wheels, so we will se how that goes. I believe I may actually need to raise the spring cup when I install my front coil overs and then install a shorter spring.
