Sizing up Tires but Spacers are tricky

I'm going to be sizing up on my tires (275/305) from the OEM specs, but I'd like to also space out my stock 343M wheels.

The plan is go with IND's (Future Classic) 10/12mm spacers, but not sure which one should go on the front vs. rear given the size up on Tires.

Secondly, there all this jargon about three depth, and opened lugs/studs/nuts etc. that I'm getting confused on -- so need some help.

1. Do i need to purchase lug extensions (if so, what MM) to accommodate project Kix -- as in do I need a (https://ind-distribution.com/collect...conversion-kit) lug extension? If so how do I spec out the thread pitch and stud length.

2. These are the Lugs I'd like (https://ind-distribution.com/collect...ng-lug-nut-set) but not sure if the 54mm will work with the spacers (either 10/12mm).

and,

3. FC has these (https://ind-distribution.com/collect...onversion-80mm) for sale but Money2536 had some issues with implementing the Lugs because the future classic studs with the kit are too short? If so, will 80mm work?

Thanks for all the help.

Cheers and have an Excellent Day!

The safe thing is to ask IND before you place the order. If it turns out to be wrong you can resolve it easier. You will need roughly 1.25 times the diameter (~ 18mm) of thread engagement. Note: the M6 uses 14 x 1.25 mm thread.

I'm running 10mm wider at the front and 20mm wider at the rear, so the top corner of my tyres will be 5mm and 10mm further out than yours. I'm effectively running a 6mm spacer at the front and a 1mm at the rear.

So if you got 11mm at the front and 11mm at the rear the top corner of your tyres would be in the same place as my car. I think that 10mm or 12mm will be around right

So are you wanting to convert to lugs? My spacers came with extended studs.
I would say try the 12 in the rear first then if you have to switch them around its pretty simple.

Here some pics ,Stock suspension ,stock 433 wheels 265/35/20 in front, Rear is 305/30/20 ,Future classic spacers 10mm front 10 mm rear zero rubbing didn't go 12mm in rear to leave more space for wider tires.when I take wheels off all the lug bolts are compatible,no different sizes to deal with

So you think with the 10mm spacer a 315 would fit ok?

Also I'd like to see more pics of the wheels. Been thinking of getting my 433 done in black also.

I like the idea of having 305 in the rear. I have also 10 mm in front and back.

Im not sure if 315s will fit you might have to take rear spacers off for that ,Im running michelin 4s now but to get a little more traction Michelin CUP2s will be a little better
