From this morning




Decided I'm going to change the front tires from 235/35 to a 215/35 to get the front lower and then I should be set as far as ride height.

If I run 5mm spacers, do I need extended bolts for them? Or will stock bolts be ok?

My Ride: station wagon
Longer bolts were advised to me by race weeks for 5 mm spacers. Stock will "work" but there will only be a few threads of the bolt holding it on. They said for street it would be ok but I was also headed to a track day and they recommended longer because of that. IMO better safe than sorry.

Howes: H&R 5mm's with bolts, http://norfolk.craigslist.org/pts/3355713322.html

I also ran 5mm's without bolts and they worked, but I only had it for a few weeks before I swapped them out...

Snik, link to the tire info? I don't have my phone on me at work and was gonna look up those tires...

EDIT: Nevermind found your thread... I think I'll just hold out till I can get the tires, thought I read them to be 225/40's in the texts. I dont think 225/45 will help much and cost to mount and balance wouldnt make it worth it. Interested in the giubo if ya still got it though
