I think they look great on her. Weld recommends a 1/2" spacer but i think its just enough tire poke where it is.

did not use a spacer
the cobra brakes are not going to let the wheel sit flush on the hub
why wouldn't you want the pizza cutters as far out as possible? Seems like with the smaller tire contact patch that having them out a little further would help it corner a little better. Now obviously pizza cutters are not made for cornering but if you are on the street with them it seems like it would help?

The offset moving the front tire out
Looks horrible
I seen a set on a car and the middle of the tire was sticking out like low rider
Looked stupid

These pro stars are a pretty solid rim

The bead is pretty solid just a well put together tire

oh ok I thought it was a performance thing. How big was the spacer to make it stick out that far?

Because I dont have $ for 17" alumastars, im going to deal with the pizza cutter wheel poke. Does anyone know the part number for moroso or ARP "direct fit" studs for an 03? Dont want to drill anything out...
