    You will need to use longer lug bolts if you use spacers.
    The ones on the cars will not allow enough of the threads to go into the hub if you use the stock ones.
    Depending on which spacer kits you buy I believe they will include longer bolts in the kit. They will be either steel or possibly titanium ones.
    Thicker spacers (20mm) might come in a different design where they are bolted to the hub and then shorter bolts or nuts are used to mount the wheels.
    Look into what you are looking to purchase and see if the lug bolts are included. If not, you could just buy steel ones instead of titanium ones.

    I am looking at buying a set of spacers like you are and they include titanium bolts.
    Even though the set is expensive, if you look at the cost including the bolts and spacers, it is easier to handle.

    HTH,
    Gene Greer

    Hey Gene, but now i'm hearing that with 15mm/20mm spacers you need to set some crazy camber, and roll the fenders..would love to hear from someone who has actually done it, because i hadn't heard that before

    There are a lot of people on here with more knowledge than I have on this subject, as I haven't done it myself. I am in the process of getting my supplies together so I can take my car to the dealer and have them do the work. I haven't heard of rolling the fenders to get clearance (and I wont do it on my car) but adding shims and other things such as this would be common to get the right specs for the alignment. This I am not worried about.
    I don't mind making changes as long as they aren't permanent and can be reversed.
    The spacers I plan to use are 14 and 17mm so I will ask my dealer in the morning for their advice.

    Let me know what you find out.

    Thanks,
    Gene Greer
