If it could help fit your rims, why not.
But in many places, it is illegal to have your wheels pass the lines of the car's body.

I personally would not do it, because in some cases you might hit something where 2mm of difference could have made the difference of not hitting something or someone.

If you do go with the spacers, make sure they are hub-centric instead of lug-centric. If the spacers are gonna be pretty thick, of course look into extended lugs. There's a possibility that the original lugs will still poke out pass the spacers so make sure the back of your rims have spaces/gaps that are between the lug pattern.

When done correctly (also tastefully, not wacky), spacers are fine.

You'd have to change the studs too I guess.
Anyone knows what I should tell the salesman when buying original studs? I thought perhaps autoparts may have em...?
