Quick Spacer Question

Do I need extended lugs for a 5mm spacer? Can I get away w/o them keeping in mind some high rates of speed

Yes you will need extended lugs for 5mm spacers, about a 32mm lug is what you will need.

You have to be careful with stud conversions. Some stud lengths will not work with spacers.

yup different length studs can handle up to different size spacers. eg. my 75mm studs can only accept up to 12mm spacers.. bigger than that i would need the 90mm studs.
