After seeing a few pictures of the 19" wheels on the Stinger, I think it would look much better if the wheels were more flushed on the car.

My plan is to go with 5mm all the way around. I believe Kia uses a 67.1mm bore and 5x114.3 bolt pattern. In case anyone else is interested I'm putting the link to the product down below. The 5x114, 67.1mm pattern is also shared with Mazda if you want to research your own.

Here's the link to the 5mm spacers

[MENTION=185]Dan[/MENTION] make sure you find/use spacers that are hub centric. That will eliminate all possible source of vibration due to miss alignment when mounting the wheels back on.

At what spacer thickness is it recommended to replace the stock studs with extended ones?

anything over 10mm will require extended studs.
However, if you are going 10mm or above I suggest you use this type of spacer


No need to worry about replacing studs, it's hub centric and it attaches to your factory studs.

Great discussion...

Let's figure-out what is the max offset that can be added without inducing ANY rubbing of the tires on wheel wheel/liner/etc.

Does this help? The studs are about 14mm.

Yes, Thank you pixeltim, I am also wanting to look at the back /inside of the actual wheel as well. I'm having the spacers made and we need to know if there are hollowed out sections in the wheel itself... regards Glen

Hi Paul, will the stock wheel studs be long enough to go with 20mm spacers and still have enough thread for the wheel nuts? Or would longer studs/bolts like ARP ones be safer as they are stronger?

With the 20mm spacers you will need extended studs that are INCLUDED with the kit, so there is no need to source studs from ARP

"Note: Original studs must be changed. Longer studs are included."
