Wheel Spacer questions

So I got wheel spacers, and when I put them on I realized that the original bolts make contact to the back of the wheel. I could get the wheel on, but it looks like this
I know people run spacers on the back of our cars, so are my wheels the issue?

So your saying the bolt is too big to go through the wheels bolt holes ? Not following u, if the rims went on before they should go on now

Where is it catching ?

the lugs in the hub that you put the bolts on stick out of the wheel spacer, making it so that the wheel cannot sit flush against the spacer like in the picture. I think the spacer may not be thick enough

I dont think your spacer is thick enough. The old lugs should not be sticking through like that.

It must be the angle of the photo but they look reassessed.

Two choices, bigger spacers or smaller lug (lugs my choice)

I had 25mm hubcentric spacers and the supplied lugs worked perfect. I thought they would supply the proper size lug to have the spacer sit flush.. Seems like bad business to me

Use a ruler, how long are the oem studs? Our oem wheels accept spacers because of the pockets.
