    Ok I'm about to get my carbonetics fender flares in (after 6 months of waiting haha) and was hoping for a couple of recommendations.
    First would be what hardware to mount the flares? and it seems like most the time they use silvers for the color, I know that's probably more of a preference thing.

    And second is, any recommendations on where to go for wheel spacers? (the ones that add studs because I will be doing more than 5mm) I've looked and found a couple sites, but was hoping to hear from my community. Thanks guys

    Studded spacers only come in 15mm of over for safety, the stud needs something to hold onto! Any thinner they just use your stock studs but most of the time your using arp extended studs anyway.

    Yes, I will most likely be doing 25 or more, I just said that to clarify which type I was talking about

    If it were me I'd use M6 rivnuts, and buy some nice dome head anodized aluminum bolts from Pro-Bolt USA.
