The collars are staked in 4 places which keeps them from falling off the bolt. Some people get a pry tool b/w the shoulder of the bolt and the top or the collar and can lever it past the ridge on the shaft of the bolt. If it were me I would take a very small grinder to the ridge until the collar can slide past the ridge. A dentist should have a grinder like that. ;) Jeff

7 mm h & r spacers

50 mm lug bolts

look is a slightly wider stance, filling out the flanks of the car better

i didn't want to go to 14\15 mm spacers and 60 mm lug bolts because i was a little concerned about unsprung weight, added stress on the wheel bearings, and the car looking like on of those low riders with the 13" wire wheels sticking out the sides :)

when i change my tires i am going to 225 in the front, and further fill out the stance and reduce understeer, this should complete the look
