Could anyone with 1" bolt on spacers do me a favor?

    My xxrs have a small pocket on the backside of them but I need to know how much the stock studs stick past the face of a 1" spacer. I think there will be enough clearance but I just want to make sure before I buy anything. If someone could measure how far the studs extrude from the surface of the spacer that would be awesome

    Were your wheel hubs flat or did they have a small pocket? This is what I am trying to avoid

    It's dark here right now. But I have 1" hub centric spacers, stock studs.
    Since these pictures I've replaced the brakes and studs but they're the same stock length studs and still work. You can sort of see the little pocket at the bottom of this picture on the back of my 03 cobra reps.

    and this is the only not straight on angle I have of the spacers not sure if it helps you tell how much they stick out..

    They don't stick out more than 1/4" probably less. I can't out the nuts on the spacers without a socket. I can maybe get a thread or 2 started by hand but the studs are really set back in there.

    Here's them with my new brakes..
    Still a bad angle but you can tell they don't stick out much.

    My spacers wouldnt work with my XXR's. Would have needed to cut the studs and I didnt want to do that so Im dealing with the look for now. Eventually Ill get around to putting longer studs in it.

    Yeah if you dont mind that would be great
    What size spacers were you running and did the xxrs have the little cutouts in them?

    My pockets are WAY bigger than I thought. But studs are the same.

    Just pulled a rear wheel and the little cutouts are 0.50" deep. Studs are 1.25 so with a 1" spacer it should work perfectly. Just sent some money over to [MENTION=18995]FivepointSlow[/MENTION]'s buddy for his 1" spacers so they should be here and on soon

    That's a lot of stress on those studs. . Not something I would recommend. That's just me tho. .

    Rodrigo. ive put the car down the track with a 1.6 60' on those studs. i am more likely to sheer an axle, than break those studs.

    Your one of the few person here that I would actually ask and trust with any advise on this forum. . But i still think it's a bad idea on a DAILY driver. . More stress out on the street. . Most cars on here are daily driven. .

    I'd think about replacing your studs for sure. I'm totally comfortable with my spacers because I just swapped out my studs for brand new ones. Then again the ones on my car where original and my car sat for 13 years so they where weak as hell. Lol
    Glad you and my friend made a deal!

    You shouldn't be using bolt on spacers.. strongest and safest option is normal spacers and arp extended studs
