you dont hneed to do shit, just make sure the little brake cover dont rub, and the bolts that hold on your brake calipers,

DO NOT RUN SPACERS!!!!!!!! If they decide to crack your wheel will fall off. Take the time to grind. It sucks, but must be done. The spacers aren't even made of steel , some cast crap.
How the hell would the wheel fall off??? The wheel studs hold the wheel to the car not the spacer. It wouldnt mater if the spacer had 100 cracks in it, the wheel still wouldnt fall off. The spacer gets compressed between the wheels and the drums, or rotors.......

You've never seen a stud break. I've installed 1000's of wheels........studs break. When the spacer cracks the peices fall out and then all the weight is on the studs with a 1/4 of an inch gap between them. Standard wheels aren't that bad , but reverse suck.

I have seen studs break, but if the spacer cracks it dont just fall out. It cant its to tight in between the 2.

damn that means i should take off the spacer off my cadi, but ive had them on for over a year and nothing has happened, "yet" lets hope nothing will happen either and also if i where to take off the spacer that would mean more grinding of the caliper and there is a bigger chance of that bitch breaken off so i think i will just stick to my spacer but just check em 1-2 a month for any cracks running center gold daytons
