So i gottem..

Brand: SPORT MAX Racing 962
Finish: Gun Metal With Machine Lip.
Size: 2 Rims 18X7.5 26.2 lbs each offset is +38
Size: 2 Rims 18X8.5 28.8 lbs each offset is +35
Bolt Pattern: 4X100 and 4X114.3 (4.5")

And I went to Costco and got my tires mounted.. Then it came to lifting up the car and installing the rims.. unfortunately.. the 18x8.5 is too wide.. :( and i guess it rubs up against the frame of the car.. so the rims dont fit.. then i tried puttin' the 18x7.5 in the rear.. and wala.. they fit.. but i dnt want the wider rim in the front.. :( so i guess i'm going to need spacers.. my uncle told me that if i were to get spacers.. 1/4 inch spacer will work but i'll prolly have to change the studs.. for safety.. any idea on where i can get some 1/4 inch spacers? thanks guys for all your help in advance..

I don't have spacers on mine but I have read on this site that One Ton Garage has spacers. Maybe check them out.

are they (rim) rubbing that little nub on the rear axle section towards the front? I had to take a grinder and grind that nub off to keep my rims from grinding. Grind it prime it and shoot some flat black paint on it if thats what it is rubbing.

There are a few others with them rims on here, they may of had the same problem.

You can run up to a 5mm spacer without longer studs.

Squirrel and Matty both had those wheels at one time, but they were running 18x8.5 frt/ 18x9.5 rear with a +35 offset. Not sure if they had any issues with rubbing......

I don't have spacers in the rear w/ my 8.5 inch wide 962, but I have the camber plates. I would go w/ the One Ton Garage rear spacer. IIRC, its $65 delivered USPS Priority Mail.
