Re: Smallest Spacer?

Brent the rule of thumb is one studs width worth of threads engaged to be safe. If you are drag racing the track may tech and want to see several threads beyond the lug nut.

Beyond that, you are going to have to answer this for yourself. With an open lug nut do you have threads exposed enough to add a spacer?

Re: Smallest Spacer?

I don't drag race it. I have uni-lug cragar ss and I am using a majority of the lug nut (except for 1/8") . I do need to remove my wheel though and center the spacer though. It's a uni-lug spacer so it currently is not centered on the drum. I have summit lug nuts for uni-lug (shank with centered washer).
