Wheel Spacers.. such a thing?

And dont laugh if its a newb question.

I checked the FAQ too.

Offset range on my car (speed6) is 48-52m and that severely limits my options for wheels that I like.

Ideally, there'd be a 10mm spacer. Or should I just buy some 255's on a 38mm offset wheel... yaa no lol.

edit: Or - how close do I have to be to the offset range? Say an offset of 45mm - that'd be to the inside of how the current 48mm wheel sits right? Just trying to visualize it.

The lower the offset the more the wheel will stick out. Getting a 45mm offset wheel for your car is perfectly fine.

Wheel spacers should not be used if you cannot get 3-4 full turns of thread on the nut. Just a side note.
