    FIY, 1/2" widened wheels Mickey T. 305/45R18 fit fine. Switched to same size Nitto and rubbed so bad could not drive car. Had to use a .25" spacer and have studs machined.

    2 inch wider on Marauder rims need a spacer..1.5 inch wider is normal for Marauder rimz. Different rims will depend on offset

    I was not 100% comfortable on the number of turns needed on a stud for a car that is raced. One
    Web site said 6 turns.

    OEM ~12.5 Turns, W/ .25" Spacer ~7.5 turns.
    I purchased Currie Studs and had them machined. I got ~14.5 turns and so far = good.
