Now, this depends on the "back of your wheel offset" and not all wheels are identical. After I swapped wheels but kept stock tires the fronts rubbed on the strut. I ran (literally) down to the local speed shop and he had some universal spacers, somwhere between 5 and 10 mm. Slipped em in and was able to go. I then ordered H&R Spacers hub centric 10mm all around (front and back) and they filled in the gap without causing a wheel/fender collision. QUality spacers are important as the universals are not guaranteeing a balance. I did need longer lugs - pay very close attention to the warning on the box and make sure you have enough lug getting into the hub threads, otherwise disaster can result! I am contemplating replacing the 10mm rears for 15mm...
