Switching to a squared setup, need help

16 GT PP


I want to switch to a squared setup for both Summer and Winter - I don't track this car and I live in the city in the Midwest. After the P Zeros wear out I'll switch to something more economical, but here's my plan until then and it should set me up to save money on tires in the long run. I just need to know, does it work?

Buying a set of GT PP takeoffs:

Summer Setup
Front: 19x9.5 - Pirelli P275/40ZR19 P Zero - 5mm spacer
Back: 19x9.5 - Pirelli P275/40ZR19 P Zero - no spacer


Winter Setup
Front: 19x9 - BRIDGESTONE BLIZZAK LM-32 P245/40R19 98V XL - No spacer
Back: 19x9 - BRIDGESTONE BLIZZAK LM-32 P245/40R19 98V XL - No spacer


Thoughts? I'm not sure if a 5mm spacer is enough. I've seen conflicting posts on multiple forums stating that the wheels clear. On top of that they mentioned >5mm spacer means it's lug centric instead of hub centric. I'm not sure what that means or why it matters.

5mm spacers
2 Wheel Hubcentric Spacers for Ford 5x114 3mm 5mm Thick 70 5mm CB | eBay


7mm spacers
2 Wheel Hubcentric Spacers for Ford 5x114 3mm 7mm Thick 70 5mm CB | eBay


10mm spacers
2 Wheel Hubcentric Spacers for Ford 5x114 3mm 10mm Thick 70 5mm CB | eBay

Do I need new studs regardless of spacer size? If so, which ones can I buy that are straight bolt on? Another forum member started talking about knurling and lost me
Quote:
Only one stud 6-10mm longer vs stock and will require dressing knurl on bench grinder.
Stock studs are 49.9mm with 0.625 knurl. cut n paste from phone notes:
610-435 57.94mm 0.628knurl
610-509 73.4mm 0.627knurl
610-437 76mm 0.628knurl
610-530 78mm 0.626knurl
610-333 90.5mm 0.625knurl

the sve drifts 19x9.5 don't need a spacer in the front even with 285/35-19's. Compare the offsets and you may not need spacers at all.

Well all wheels have different offsets, the only fair comparison would be with the GT PP wheels

that is why I said compare them.. if they happen to be the same of 1mm different you wont need spacers. The pp wheels are only 9.5 in the back from what I remember.
