    Yeah i was trying to avoid a spacer, but you make a really good point.

    Sell your wife on a set of FP (ARP) 3" wheel studs+open-end wheel nuts (FP or many options). Need these on the front axle to permit sufficient thread engagement once you install spacers.

    Sounds a bit scary (installing the studs, not convincing your wife about the value of the parts :rolleyes:)... but the front isn't a hard install. The right YouTube channel is your friend.

    Short-term pain but big $aving$ on tires in the long-term.

    I'm not worried about the install. I did them on my Fox Mustang track car several years ago. I plan on doing them front and rear ( even budged for new hub bolts and axle nuts)

    I'm at 8k in parts if I could order the stuff I wanted today and that is not true to what I want, just what I can deem reasonable for how i want to use the car. I can hear my wife laughing ad spending that much on a brand new car, but she won't notice if i squeeze it in here and there. LOL

    Try " but honey...this little change will cut my tire costs in half".

    True? True enough!
