I am trying to find a light weight set of big/littles that use conical style lugs, that I won't need a spacer, for my 01 gt

I like these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-561-5465ps/overview/ but not sure if they will clear on the front without a spacer, and I'm pretty sure that these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-561-5866ps/overview/ will fit fine on the rear.

Am I going about this all wrong or am I right on the money?

The fronts have a -19mm off set, but does that mean I would need a spacer for it? I am trying to keep the cost down, as this set would cost less than $500 new it would be preferrable for a new set, and I haven't been having any luck finding a used set locally or online that use the conical lug style.

Not trying to change your choice. But some 94-98 V6 wheels (15") are the lightest wheels out there.. you could probably snag a set for really cheap and just get the tires you want. I'm not sure if they fit with 99-04 brakes though, i could be wrong.

Are these what you are talking about?

If so, I'm not looking solely for lightweight, but want to look semi-decent, these things are hideous to me.

If not, please post a picture?!

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction on the wheels he was referring me to...

However, I was hoping for an answer if the set I had questions about on the OP will fit right or what? I don't want to have to change the studs or use a spacer, but would like a set of big&littles with a conical style lug

The stock rims have a Positive offset which means they sit off the hub in a positive manner. Maybe this image will help

normally people don't have any issues running any of The GT brakes with a set of drag wheels like you have chosen.

I am familiar with the +/- offset, just not specifically what fits the car...I almost had a set of jegs stars with tires for $600, but the guy decided to give them to his dad, or so he says...Looking more and more like I'll have to buy new...it's just going to cost me more.
