3mm won't be much to throw off the fitment of your wheels and fenders. I mean it all depends on how low you are going. You can always add more camber Just don't over do it...I've got friends that swap tires as often as they change their oil.

He did tell me that i needed spacers with the TT brakes so i took a chance hoping that the LS brakes would clear. Didnt work out in my favor Im gonna try a 3mm spacer and see if that helps, just gonna purchase the 3mm and 5mm.
The wheels look good on the car.. get some tires on them and slap them on. Chrome is alright, you can always PC/paint them. The design is nice!

do not shave. get the spacer bro.. Think about it, what if by accident you get a little heavy handed and shave to much? Caliper replacement costs etc.. Do the spacer and save yourself the hard labor. lol

Are they hub centric? In other words is the center ring of the spacer 60.1mm to match the toyota hub? If not, I strongly encourage you not to use them!

knowing that the 1uz with a 5 speed and a tune spins tires makes me horny!

you quantum guys need to make a video of the 5speed sc400 going all out from 1st to like 4th gear.
