I found some nice rims (18x9/18x10)but the offset is +24mm. From what I know I need something like a 36mm offset so can I use spacers to make them fit? If I can, will it hurt performance a lot?

Thanks

I wouldn't. I do not feel like they are the safe way to go. The front off set should be +41-+44. I had a set of Racing hart Tracer's with an off set of +38 and used spacer, but pulled the rims and spacers off. The studs were almost to short with spacers. Now I have Racing Hart C5's with an off set of +41still very close to the big front caliper,but now the studs have the thread length that I want.

If you use spacers with studs instead of just a spacer, you will not have the problem of short studs. Many of the SCCA racers will use them to get maximum offset without comprimising wheel clearance. IMO.

I wouldnt mind having spacers just to make the stock rims look a little better.:D

You do realize that with the 24mm offset wheels, you need the exact OPPOSITE of a spacer to get them to fit, right? Less offset = wheel sticks out more......

I agree that spacers should only be used to fill a void when using stock or very close to offeset. I have seen extremes and dont consider them very safe.
