you will need to buy hub centric spacers, they are a bit pricey, also take into consideration any extra stress it may place on your wheel bearings, many speak of this although i have met no oner who actually has had early failure through using them.

this is so weird. I was looking into this too. I read from older posts that up to 9.5mm can use existing bolts. I would like the wheels to sit a bit more flush with the arches but not sure how many mms it would need

Thanks for the pics. Your car looks really good. I did a bit more research and will get 10mm front and 20mm rear adapters (I read they are safer/better than spacers)

I am running stock suspension, so I guess I wouldn't have to roll my arches right?

well they are not adaptors, they are infact hubcentric spacers. They are Eibach spacers so either look on ebay or search google. Think I got them from Demon-tweeks
