Could you clarify your statement on the unsafe part, and you only need 3/4 spacers for those wheels for them to clear.

At our store, we always caution people who come in looking for 1.5 - 2 inch spacers for larger diameter wheels. They need to understand that they are pushing a lot of rotating mass away from, and exerting additional force on, the wheel hub. Depending on the combination, it can be unsafe due to the stress placed on the lug bolts. Most of the time, though, it will just cause premature wear.

towcat, basicly what bill said. truthfully even a 3/4 is too much imo.

+ i have seen them come apart in a road race and drag race. your car and your saftey are not worth saving a few hundred on a set of wheels that actually fit!
