< Make sure you check the tyre clearance if you space out the wheel as you will be effectivly moving the outer edge of the tyre closer to the wheel arch liner at full lock. Also make sure that the wheel bolts are long enough, they may also need to be tightened more than normal, which could damage the bolt or flange threads. I personally wouldn't recommend spacers for a road car, it's different on a race car as it doesn't have to contend with broken road surfaces, pot holes etc., all of which put undue stress and strain on the wheel and bolts, also a race car has to do a few laps of a race track before re-torqueing of wheel bolts.
