    I would go hubcentric, it all depends on how big of spacers you are thinking...?

    well there are the type with the built in studs which are nice because you dont have to install longer wheel studs in your spindles then there is just the flat disc type where it is reccomended to install longer studs if you use ones longer then 1/4".

    Hubcentric are balanced so they wont cause any wobbling etc.

    You are not able to use those at the track..they are illegal now. As I say in a ton of these posts, if you are going to run spacer (hubcentric is best) you MUST get longer wheel studs. 3 inch, that way you have lots of thread for the lug nut.

    What about the Moroso ones? Check out www.maximummotorsports.com they sell a few types of studs that they reccomend with their spacers.

    Unless its a street car, then the style with the built in studs will be fine.
