HOWEVER, if I found that installing them was more trouble than clamping them in place and walking away they'd be off my car in a heartbeat. IMO don't mod your car to make them fit. Maybe you should contact MGP for new ones. They shouldn't be a headache to install.
I did contact MGP and they are sending some kind of wheel spacer free of charge not sure of size?
They said I should not need them for the back wheels just the front because of large calipers.
I did upgrade to the 19" wheels and might be reason they don't fit since they just came out new for 13.
