might be a stupid question so feel free to chime in and make me feel dumb but I was planning on purchasing wheel spacers. My current wheels have a 73.1 centerbore and I have hub rings. If I purchase wheels spacers with the hubcentric lip, would the hub rings fit on the lip of the spacer? what problems could I potentially run into?

one of my friends works at a graphic design firm where they make banners/advertisement decals for company cars and I asked if he could do this vinyl for me and he did and I think it came out awesome. I also only have it on the drivers side

it took me a while but all you need is a flathead or some pliers.
it's kind of annoying but I just used this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFWrgZQCs8s

met a fellow dubber in the middle of LA to upgrade my short lived (had them on for about 3-4 months) 3SDM .06s to authentic polished BBS RS
BBS RS
18x9 et~25 squared
2 inch lips


after spending way too much time trying to put these on with wobble bolts, because of the fear of stripping the hub, we finally got them mounted
