Default If you have wheel spacers, Read this! Help!

So hopefully I got the attention of someone who can be my savior.

My predicament: I recently moved to sportmaxes for the street. I did small flares in the rear and pulled/altered the front fenders to fit. The plan was to do all this so that I could clear some nice 15x8 or possibly even 15x9 track wheels.
Obviously, the track wheels I have - Team Dynamics 15x7 +30 would look ridiculous now, with the wider fenders. However, I am 6 days away from Miatas @ MRLS event, and the budget has not yet allowed for me to get new track wheels.

So, I'm stuck using the 15x7's at Laguna. I realllllly don't want to spend $100 on wheel studs and another $140 on 1/2" spacers to avoid looking absurd at this event when I want to put that money towards new track wheels soon.

So, if ANYONE has wheels spacers, I am willing to get some longer wheel studs, since those are a necessity when using spacers, and it's not a bad thing to have anyways, and will give someone a deposit if they will loan me their spacers for next weekend. At the end of the weekend, you can keep $20 of the deposit for helping me out.

Someone please rescue me from the situation I've gotten myself in.
PM me here or email me at:

I'd rather look stupid than run 1/2" wheel spacers on track.
