    With the washer on it should be a little shy of being flush with the the back mounting pad (spacer) hope this helps!

    i think the lug nut is to long if i double the washer it will get tight but i dont know if it will tork down properly. what should the tru spoke tork to? these are old ones 15x7.

    No the only thing i have is the wheel adaptors i had to go 5x5 to 5 4 3/4 and they are 1-1/4 thick the good ones.the tru spoke would not clear my hub center on the rotor.

    Are you sure you've got the right washers?? Maybe the P.O. (if there was one...) gave you some that aren't the right thickness?
