05 STI 0em wheels/ 15mm spacer issue

so I had the opportunity to fit a really well kept 05 sti, it had over fenders so I did my tape and roll technique on it, everything turned out gravy. modest roll/pull on all 4 corners.

fitment hks hipermax 2's coilovers, -2 degrees camber rear 15mm spacer on 08sti wheels

now the spacer gave us a slight problem

the 15mm didnt allow the sock wheels to seat properly, the studs came out too far, it would have worked perforctly on an aftermarket wheel.

example: enkei nt03-m

stock studs need to be trimmed about 1/4inch to seat properly

This is good. I have the exact same problem with fitting 15mm spacers with my factory wheels as the studs are in the way.
Have you got any larger resolution photos for us? As the photos in the blog are pretty small!

Thanks :)

another note guys, 15mm AND 20mm requires trimming of the studs ... (25mm will clear)
