Did a search on wheel studs & spacers. And that just turned one question into two.

Here's a couple of quick questions (I hope)

I want to replace my wheel studs when I install my new rims this spring. Also looking at big break kit down the road and I may need to change the spacers, so that's why I'm looking at aftermarket. Which would you guys recommend?

The ARP's:

Or the CT:

Or should I pull the spacers off my Fikse rims (which are 1mm off being hub centric F&R, they move a little) and replace them with the Dali's or HKS?

First hand experience would be great!

When I put a Brembo 13" BBK on my Acura CLS last spring, I needed wheel spacers and longer wheel studs.

So I had custom 5mm spacers made out of billet aluminum to match my Volk LE37Ts rims up to my hubs. According to CompTech and a few other sources I checked with, 5mm spacers are about as thick as you should go. Otherwise, wheel bearings and other components can be adversely affected by wear and/or failure.

For the longer and harder studs, I went with the CompTech one's that are out of an NSX BBK and measure 12mm x 1.5 x 59mm.
