Spacer question

So these 20's I just got rub on my springs at full turn. I've been researching spacers and I think 1/2 on each side would give me enough. Are the ones that slide over the studs bad? Im only gonna run 35's. What do yall think

with a 1/2in spacer, the spacer probably has its own wheelstuds. I wouldnt run them, with how heavy these beast are. Why not get same wheels but a more of a backspace?

Re: Spacer question

IMO 1/2 spacers will be fine if you don't have the funds or access to correct wheel size. It isn't the ideal thing to do but 1/2 isn't much. Make sure your lugnuts end up at least flush with the end of the studs so you have all the threads of the nut engaged to the stud. Wheel bearing life may be slightly decreased, but nothing like a 2" spacer would do to a bearing.
