Default Anyone running wheel spacers with stock wheels?

Im going to be lowering my CT with Road Magnet springs shortly (stay tuned for pictures, spec, and review). I want to put spacers on, but im curious what other people are running front and rear. I was thinking 15mm front 20mm rear? I would using a bolt on style spacer that is hubcentric for safely and reduced vibration...

Did you end up getting the spacers?

If so, what kind and brand did you go with?

I am running spacers w/ extended studs. OEM ones are popped out and sitting in a bag lol.

I have after market wheels but they are similar in size to OEM wheels. I haave Work Emotion CR Ultimates 17x7 +38 and H&R DRS Trak+ Spacers: 10mm Front /15mm Rear. I'm like perfect in the front. i could prolly poke out 2-3 more mm but its like perfectly flush. the rear i have a bit of room left. probs could squeeze an extra 3-5mm extra ez.

i'm lowered like 1.25" and i don't rub.

I'm running the same setup as above but with H&R TRAK+ Wheel Spacers. I haven't gone for an alignment to see where the numbers are since installing the springs and spacers though.

I think you have up to +20 front and +30 rear on stock rims to play with.

+15 front and + 20 rear is playing it safe

how much do those spacers cost and how much do extended studs cost and is it possible/easy to install extended studs myself at home with a socket set?

Voracious, what's the bore size on those wheels? The bore on the OEM wheels is 54mm, which makes it VERY difficult to find a spacer that will work.

Does anyone know any vendors that make reliable, high quality 5x100/54mm bore hubcentric spacers for OEM wheels? I checked with b2designs and Charles said they don't have them and neither do H&R or Ichiba.

Any and all help is appreciated!

Actually, if you're on stock wheels, you have +-30mm up front and +-45mm out back to play with lmao.

Stock wheels are 17x7 +45. You could go 17x7 +15 up front and 17x7 +0 out rear. This also depends on other factors.

I'm going to answer my own question. Apparently, spacers designed for the Prius will fit the CT200h because they have the same bolt pattern and 54.1mm bore size; Ichiba makes some V2's that are 1 piece, so I'm asking b2designs if they can get some at a good price below MSRP.
