For some cases yes.  Like for instance a Z32 or R32 caliper.  They are much bigger and need more clearance to fit.  Our cars are naturally not able to accommodate this.  But with this setup, you can push your wheels a bit further out allowing for a larger one and bigger lip and for bigger calipers for better brakes.

I thought spacers already came with studs pressed into the spacer?  Thats how mine were anyways.
Good find though...come in handy if I break a stud or something..like I did in my Maxima a few years ago

well would you rather bolt them on or take out your stock studs and put new ones in? The bolt on ones are also considered much safer, I know for a fact that most tire shops will not work on cars with SLIP ON spacers

I swapped over to 12x1.5mm thread pitch because I already had a ton of forged aluminum lug nuts laying around. You can get extended studs from your local parts house for an F-Body GM and they fit perfectly. The part number is Dorman 610-323 and they are 19mm longer than OE. Best thing is they are cheaper than the J30 studs, they are $1.49 each here.

Bolt On Adapters are definitely the way to go.

True, but definitely not beneficial unless you are going to need 15mm or more.

Extended studs are also necessary to be able to use after market lug nuts, safely. Our cars were designed to run Extended Thread lug nuts to compensate for the short studs. Obviously, in order to use your average conical seat nuts you need more thread to grab a hold of. People who lose their wheels are the ones who use slip on spacers without extended studs or are retarded and go over 13mm without bolt-on spacers.

I agree.  I wouldn't go over 10mm with a slip on, personally.

yeah on my rears, theres not much thread engagement, i wouldnt feel safe running spacers back there. the fronts are a different story, i could probably get away with 10mm

I work at a fountain tire, and i havent seen the bolt on types before. Worked on a few vehicles with the slip ons tho, mostly jacked up trucks and such.

Havent ever realy had a problem with em, they're pretty much like having fatter rotors... but i def like the look of the bolt on ones for sure, especialy with the center ring still there to mount on.

Is it possible to get ones that would alter the bolt pattern as well ?
