Spacers on the track???

I like the look of a more aggressive stance than factory. I am lowered on AST/swift coilovers with stock 19" style 230's. I am running 5mm spacer in the front and 15mm in the back for the street. Anybody have problems running spacers on the track??
Lmk. Planning my first track day with my 335.
Thanks.

The less "spacer" you have will take stress off the studs. However, the max you can go (or would want to go) is 10-15mm. Just make sure you have really sturdy studs and you torque your wheels to around 100ft-lbs. Shouldn't be an issue with the setup you have!
