You need a spacer... I had stock Evo VIII wheels, definately need a spacer, which threw me off, because I didn't want to run them on my car, because I plan on making quite a bit of power, and occasionally tracking the car, and I don't wanna run spacers if I am tracking my car...

Dumb question, but what is the difference between offset and spacers?
Also, doesnt one of them(dont remember which one) have the potential for vibration at highway speeds?

offset is the variable of how far the wheel sits away from the hub of the vehlicle for brake clearance. if you use spacers, which some people do, you dont allow yourself the full torque capability that is reccomended for all of the threads of the lugs.

whats wrong with running spcaers? I ran them on a 500whp srt-4 and road raced and 1/4 miled my car quite a few times... oh and daily drove it too.. no problems here...

But I guess you could be like the other idiots on SRTForums.com and NOT torque your lug nuts down properly and have 3 out of 4 wheels fall off while auto-x'ing the car...

Yes it will, I am running 18x9 35mm on a 235/35/18 lowered on a eibach sportline kit. I had a lot of rubbing untill I massaged the inner fender with my hammer.

I am not dead certain but I think that that is incorrect. If the above is true then a +35mm offset would mean that the wheel face would sit closer to the hub than a +45mm.

Pretty sure that the offset off the wheel is measured from from the centerline of the barrel. A positive being towards the face and negative towards the rear of the barrell.

Note that this isnt to scale.

Rear wheel drive is self explanitory as is FWD, but the Mid Drive is a little tricky. It usally describes import SUV's that are actually RWD or AWD.

u would probably need hubcentric rings as the evo's hub bore is 67.1 and i believe the Si's to be 64.1

ill definitely be doing this.

Yes you need a hub centric ring and you need new lug nuts. Honda uses a ball type seating area and 98% of the rest of the world uses a conecle design.

I was going to make a new thread but decided to keep using this one and revive it from the dead. Does any know a good place online to order hubcentric rings or if a local wheels shop would have them. Also I have Acorn Lugnuts in my garage but was told it wont work on stock will they work on a set of BBS wheels if I got some
