Regular generic spacers aren't because it leaves all the stress on the lugs and studs, instead of having the little ring in the middle to help with stress and support, called the hub. That is why you get hub centric spacers, with a new hub built in/on the outside of the spacer so that you spread the stresses out across the hub ring as well as the studs and lugs, instead of having everything supported by just the lugs, which defeats the whole purpose of the hub being there in the first place, they were designed for a reason. Hub centrics are much safer than generic spacers.VERY nice CR - What metal did you use for the spacer? As I've heard those aren't typically the safest things in the world to install if you're going to be using the car for performance. Maybe I'm way off, but I heard they weren't always the best idea.
Definitely a bit of needed breathing room though on the knuckles, so I guess it had to be done either way.
Oh and I'll say it before anyone else - TOO MUCH 4x4!!!!11!1!!! :lol:
