Oh no another wheel spacer question!!!

ok heres the run down...i want to look super gnar so will 5" spacers work??

just kidding
but i was wondering if anything will get severly hurt with running a small like 1/4" or less spacer becauce my lugnuts are too shallow for the studs by about 2 turns....thanks for any replies

Agreed, it will probably be cheaper too. A GOOD set of wheels spacers usually cost $100+
