    I used to run 5mm on the front and that used longer bolts,so i would say none, for peace of mind i would always use longer bolts, what size you thinking of running?

    I havent measured yet, it would only be on the rears anyway. Sounds like any spacers, require longer bolts, as you say, peace of mind !!!

    To be safe you need @ least 6 full turns @ the front and 5 min @ the rear. 5mm spacers should be fine above that longer wheel bolts for sure..
