Are wheels spacers safe to use on a Corvette? Or are these suggested as a "no no"?
An 1/8" is ok w/the stock lug nuts. Some have used up to a 1/4" but I had a problem with not enough thread engagement using a stock type lug nut.
For me It depends on what you plan to do with the car once you put the spacers on. I would never want them on my car if I were going to be running high performance driving events or track days. I would also recommend that you find a spacer that has a second set of lug studs on it and mounts to your lugs and provides a new, full length set of studs to mount your tires to. As an alternate plan I would suggest longer studs to replace your factory parts.
I will confess that I am not a fan of spacers but that is just me. If you are going to be casually driving or showing the car, go for it. If you want to wring every last ounce of performance out of the car on a track or twisty mountain roads I think I'd pass and do it right without the spacers.
If you run it correctly and use high-quality wheel spacers, it is very safe，When shopping for spacers, make sure they're both hub centric and wheel centric. This will ensure that your wheels are centered properly. Also, consider the quality of the metal used. I've seen cheaper brands have their studs shear. If you're looking for a reputable brand, BONOSS is the way to go. They're very well built and will hold up well. I bought a set used 3 years ago and they're still perfect.
