hey i am looking to get the enkei rs5's and they are 40 mm offset in 17 x 7. my freins has 17 x 8 wiht 35 mm offset and i like the look with the wheels pushed out to the fender edge no pasti but nice and flush. Will a 5 mm spacer help to place the wheels to the edge of the fender? if not then what will i need or just learn to live with it.

There's nothing inherently wrong with spacers. As long as you're not straying to far from stock offset and you're not going so thick as to start running out of stud threads, you should be fine. Using 5mm to get to 35mm offset should be fine. You'll still be a half inch away from sticking out as far as your buddy though (due to the diff in wheel width)

yea i had 5mm spacers on for a while with no problems. im moving the 5 to the front and putting 15mm inthe back. i have to change the studs for 15mm because there is no thread left...

its not the width that's the matter, its the offset....
if we're talking about how far the wheels stick out, it's both
