Just find a wheel that comes in proper fitment, I think that's the ugliest Volk wheel anyway.
Kics has a 10MM conversion spacer 5x100 -> 5x114.3. This will work with any volk wheel.

Yeah, that would prob work... but after seeing spacers like this fail on the highway I opt not to use them, especially since I track my car.

For me spacers are always a no no. Find proper wheels instead. Dont force Things. Just my 2 cents

Quality spacers with quality studs for quality wheels that don't fit.

No rain Christmas morning and no cars out there, I just went to hwy 9 and it is still slippery in many corners where mud is still on the road. Some still have water running down from thE mountain. I keep my VSC on all time and drive safe.

yeah definitely keep in mind that for a few days after some major rain, many of the back roads will have all kinds of mud, rocks and debris out there...

So, the wife and I were out of town to visit the family and came home to this after a long weekend of rain. Apparently one of our sump pumps conk'd out right when we needed it. Fortunately it was only about 5-6" max, so the brz and alot of my tools were safe.
