    If using longer studs, open ended is a good idea for when you remove the spacers, or else you will need to remove the studs and swap smaller ones back in.

    I know rpf1 17x9 +45 will work on a genwon speed... with fender roll (and maybe pull). To be safe I was told I may need 10mm spacers to clear the strut. Just to add to the discussion and clarify somethings.... i'll need extended studs, and new lug nuts when I run these wheels?

    Think most can get away with 5mm spacers on the front, which wouldn't require extended studs. Most likely you will need a tuner style lug.

    you can go a max of an 8mm spacer on stock studs. but i wouldnt recommend it. run a 5mm and you will be safe. ebay is a good place to start looking for spacers. or any performance part shop. ie. jspec, JRP etc.

    @marcodude04
    Good quality spacers are a must... eBay is good yes however make sure you are getting what you expect and not a cheap knock off....

    I found these RMX wheel spacers that 'should' work with mz3 because they are the same specs... but are for the Hyundai genesis . They are about $100 a pair for 15mm to 38mm and seem like a good make:

    They are also located in the 416

    Also for the torque and such on the lugs, I just researched this the other day as I changed out my rims and needed tuner lugs. Book shows 66-86 fl/lbs of torque. I used 80lbs since it is easy to remember.

    I ordered a set of Enkei Raijin, they come in today (18x8, 45mm offset).. Am I gonna need new lugs or anything special? I'm no enthusiast of rims whatsoever

    I believe you can use oem, however they are very large and your wheel might be scratched when you try and take them off. I'd suggest aftermarket tuner lugs
    Modifications? I've forgotten more than I remember. Click here for the list.
