NC 10mm Hubcentric Wheel Spacer

Hi Brian,

Just wanted your opinion on fitting the 10mm wheel spacers you have on your website for the NC. Since lowering the car with konis and progress springs the wheels look like they sit too far in. I was hoping to solve this by fitting the spacers with extended studs. Any thoughts? (Cant afford new wheels with better offset)

On the page it says extended wheel studs x 10 for Japanese application only... is that a legal thing or that they wont fit other models?

Sorry for the nooby questions.

This is a Japanese application, it's a Japanese made car.

Those will get the job done, but note most home mechanics won't be able to install the rear.....likely need a mechanic to pull the rear apart to install.

Question regarding hub-centric rings for aftermarket wheels. When I installed the 17x9 PFO1 SS wheels from your web store on my NC, I forgot to check if they needed rings or not. It didn't seem like it, but am I mistaken? No weird noises or fitment issues.

That wheel takes a ring if you want it, but if you hand load and hand torque your lugs you can skip the rings.

I do hand load and torque the wheels, carefully I might add. So that sounds good to me.
