Ok on my aero. If I were to use the wheel spacers that have studs on em (theres others but i prefer these)....and lets say I get em in 1.25" will there be a need to trim my wheel studs? I've had this issue before with another car.

No (will not have an issue).

-AND- For adapters that are < 1" it's only an issue if the backside of the rim's mounting flange (what mates to the hub) does not have indentations in its casing to allow for studs that are longer than (say) 1" (i.e. the " non-threaded nipple of the stud).

H&R spacers worked like a charm for me, they are hub centric and german smile

But they cost some money...

Eibach's adapters are made (at least were in 2005) by H&R (also in the Black Forest by elves), however, co$t fewer $$$$$.
