wheel spacer lug nuts and OEM studs hit wheels

my 2010 V6 sedan has 20 mm bolt on spacers on the rear with OEM 7 spoke 17x7.5 55 wheels. The spacer nuts and lug studs stick out a little past the face of the spacer but there are pockets between the wheel lug holes that they fit into

today i put on a set of 2013 up, same size. OEM wheels and they hit the spacer nuts and lugs. the wheels have pockets but not as large as the older set of wheels

any ideas how to get more clearance?

thanks

Shave down the studs on the spacers.

You could shave your factory studs down, drill the holes in the rims deeper while risking structural integrity, get wider wheel spacers, or get another set of rims. Those are your options.

Not that I know of but google away bro. Also 25mm spacers wouldn't hurt in the front and you can run even higher ones in the rear, like 35mm with out any issues with rubbing or poke.

i felt that the 20 mm rear was just right for my likes
i read about 20 front and 25 to 38 rear but don't think that is the look i want

i may end up trying a die grinder to enlarge the wheel pockets a bit or get use to the OEM spacerless look

Replacing studs is a PITA, when i did the rears on my 08 Fit, i got the studs from Jegs.

The back studs are a pain but doable. You basically just take off the wheel/rotor, hammer them out and then you have to force them back through. I used an old lug nut with a crazy amount of anti seize on the stud, something to use as a spacer like an over sized nut, and an impact.

The front you will run into problems because there is a lot more that will get in the way because its a front wheel drive car. Mine got rusty from using open ended lug nuts and it would have been difficult enough to do the front that I opted to just clean them up and leave them because they weren't that bad.

I also believe that the hub-centric bolt on spacers are a lot stronger than adding longer studs.

What yhssswimmer said is 100% correct. I used my shop press to squeeze the old studs out and used the old double nut trick to pull the new ones into the hub, which was splined on the Fit so it was hard to screw it up. The fronts, on the other hand. Suffice it to say, i will not be doing that job again, EVER. The bolt on spacers are an absolute no brainer. Unless of course, your wheels dont work wth those lol

Why not just use a 25mm spacer instead? That will solve your problem and you won't have to ruin your front studs by grinding them down. If you are planning on grinding out the back of the wheels take it to a machine shop and have it done right.

We're talking 5mm difference, think about that for a sec. That's not even 1/4 inch. You probably won't even see the difference but it may be just enough to fit in the new wheel pockets. The rears are WAY more tucked than the front so an extra 10-15mm which is like alil less than 1/2 and inch to alil over 1/2 an inch.
