All depends on the wheel tire combo and if you are widebodied or have flares. On my new setup I'm running a 2" billet adapter/spacer that installs to the hub with special lug nuts and also has new hardened lugs installed on the Spacers that the wheel mounts to. If you just want a small spacer you can use a cast aluminum spacer if you need a small amount of clearance.

I am able to provide hubcentric billet Spacers up to 3" wide in any bolt pattern.

it's solid billet aluminum the same thing they use on touring cars with huge widebodies.

the adapter is bolted to the car the adapter has lug studs that mount the wheel. you end up with double the number of lug nuts on each corner.
