    Hello,

    Having never run wheel spacers before I have a question.

    If one runs one of the wheel spacers that has the studs made on it... Do you run the stock lug nuts to mount the wheel to the spacer.

    I've just seen pictures of these things... Some apparently come with new "nuts". Do you use your oem lug nuts to attach the spacer to the hub and then the new "nuts" to attach the wheels to the spacer or the exact opposite?

    The new nuts that come with the spacer attach the spacer to the hub/drum. Old lug nuts stay with the wheel.

    I've been running spacers for 2 years now, no probs. Above post is correct about the lugs.
