Default 5mm Spacers...Need longer studs?

Ok guys here's my problem.

I bought a set of 17x7 + 42 Offset MSR wheels, they look great, I've bought a set of 4 Toyo Proxes 4 to put them on my NSRT-4...The problem is, wheels are rubbing against the front caliper...Not by much, I can turn them with my hands, but I don't want to hurt anything...

I've been looking around here for wheel spacers, and they don't seem to sell anything smaller than 5 MM..If I buy those, will I need longer studs??? I don't want to get home and have not enough thread left in my studs to put on my nuts!

Should I just wait and buy 3MM spacers just to make sure everything is ok?

Thanks guys!
Sorry about my poor english!

5mm spacers will not require longer wheel studs.

Just curious, which model MSR wheels did you get?

I have 5mm spacers on the rear, and used to have 3mm spacers in the front. No issues whatsoever

Why are you getting that big of spacers with that offset? They will fit without spacers.

Oh I forgot you're a hellafaggot.

No youll need extended studs.

Hey guys, I have the facto 17s and I'm about to get the Eibach pro-kit lowering springs. I was gonna order wheel spacers too jus to get the wheels flush with the fenders (nothing crazy). Any suggestions on what size spacers i would need?

thanks
