I have original Mach 1 wheels on my 2003 Mach 1. I want the back wheels to stick out a little more because they are tucked in too far in right now and looks weird. Whats the biggest spacer size I can run without having to replace the studs? Will a 1 inch hubcentric spacer work without having to cut down my original studs?

Use a quality spacer like a H&R so you know it won't come apart or the studs will fly out. You can use a 35mm one made by them without having to modify anything.

On my 97 cobra I have a 1.25" Spacer, not stud modification at all. If your factory wheels have pockets in the back you can get away with a 1" spacer. I actually have both sets, Iv had the 1.25's on for over a year and no issues at all. The 1" were never used, they are hub centric as well.

I had 1.25" spacers for over a year with no issues. Depending on the offset and tire width, either a 1.25" or 1.5" will make it flush.

Do you mean the 25mm? I think 35mm would be too much.

Would you be willing the sell them?

I dont want it to be completely flush with the fender, just closer than it is right now. I think 1 inch would be perfect.

35mm will put you just like about a 1/2" from being flush with the fender.

Ahh I see, I have 275s on my Mach 1 wheels so the tires bulge out a little more than the picture shown. I don't want any chance of rubbing. Plus I will be lowering my car.

Your going to want to roll the fender anyway. No matter how much you lower it.

Yeah I know, I was going to get them rolled before I installed spacers. I just dont want them to sit right next to the fender is all.

yeah man all up to you. Just do some searching online.

Just ts giving you an idea on what I suggested. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and love the way it looks in whatever size you use.

You could just buy some 10.5" mach 1 wheels from afs ;)
