I just got my new welds and tried to install my front wheels. I got 15 X 5 with 3.5 bs. Im having some fitment issues. When i went to install them they are rubbing the brake caliper. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and how you resolved it. I thought about the spacer option but it doesnt seem like the studs are long enough. I have considered adapters but idk about that option any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is it a 94-04 GT brake setup or Cobra setup? If it is a GT setup all you need is a 5/16 wheel spacer.

Its a v6 it seems like if i add spacers there wont be enough stud to get a lug nut onto safely. what do you think about cutting that little bar off of tthe caliper.

No I would rather see you install some longer wheel studs.

I would only run a hubcentric spacer if you had to. I currently run one but the only other choice I have right now it to remove the Cobra calipers.
To install the new studs you'll have to remove the hub and press the new studs in.
