I liked the flush look more with SRT sized wheels and tires and I think thats whats throwing me off having skinnier tires far out just takes getting used to. So anyway, there is a chance these will be for sale so keep an eye peeled if you are looking for a set to have quickly rather than order new and have to wait a month. If you are very serious PM me and we will discuss.
James your nuts. It looks awesome. It will grow on you with time. Trust me. Maybe I'm wrong and everyone is different so either way your HA looks great.

I can agree about the skinnier tire but all together the stance looks mean like this.

Spacers are off the vehicle and for sale ready for immediate shipment. Takes almost a month to receive if you order new as they make per order. See my for sale thread here:

Damn, that was fast!


I have the same hangups about the spacers, honestly. Mine are in the garage waiting to go on, and I just keep telling myself $250 for spacers is a lot cheaper than $1500 for wheels/tires. We'll see what happens...

I love the look of the spacers and links combo. It convinced me that I didn't need to go spend $2,000 on 22" srt reps and tired but not everyone is the same. You'll just have to try for yourself and see what you like.

FYI, as i don't know if it's been stated here before: i talked to the dude at BORA. torque specs on the spacers is "85-90ish". meaning, spacer to the hub AND wheel to the spacer. this is pretty different from what the GJC manual wants (130 ft#) and different from what others here have devined (between owners and service manuals) of around 105 ft#. but BORA was very clear no more than that.

shrug.

Did lower offset wheels over spacers. Have 18x9 with +12 offset and really happy with results. Kept stock size but got Michelin Defender LTX M/S

That's weird, the instruction sheet that just came with my new Bora spacers specifically said to torque both lugs (spacer and wheel lugs) to factory specs.

I'm sure 90 is fine. I don't even know what stock lug torque spec is to be honest, but I'm sure its somewhere around there.

manual says 130 (!!) but someone else here in another thread did some digging and found different recommendations in service manual, etc. sounded like 105 is average of all different sources.

Eh, I've always done around 100 since I bought a torque wrench.


A little Loctite on the stock lugs when installing the spacers should help matters. FYI, if you use Loctite, don't go back and recheck the torque because it will break the Loctite if it's already set up.
