    but after installing them, I noticed that my rim was about 8 to 10 mm poked out even out of the fender.
    it was looking really back. so I took them off again and came to a conclusion that
    perfect size would be about 12 to 15 mm wheel spacer

    I heard of a guy who will die cast spacers for me of any size I ask him to...
    so my next plan of action was to go to that guy
    and finally i found that shop of die casting (dhalayi)

    I asked him to make 1/2 inch thick (12.7 mm) he told me to go to Lathe Machine guy and that guy told me to get a die casting of about 20 mm thick and 6.5 inch diameter

    and the die casting process started ......

    Wide Spacers will increase the scrub radius but I think 1/2 inch will not be of that much issue. Make sure your kharadiya use Hub centric design (Inside and outside) so that the wheel is centered properly on the spacer and in turn the spacer on the hub. This design also prevents having load directly on lugs.

    the only change in car were the spacers.
    I said.... this is not it ....
    these spacers are not good enough to be used.
    because .... they are causing wobbling and the lug nuts are just 4 threads tight.
    so I reduced the speed to 80 to 90 km/hr and on my return I took off all four spacers and came back to 1x1=1

    Thinking process started again in my mind....
    I came up with two things.
    one, I need a better quality spacers.
    two, If I arrange spacers then I will try to get around half an inch spacer.

    Now what to do..... from where to find/get these .........
    Longer bolts should have solved that problem

    The one I got was of pathetic quality. Have you tried yours on high speeds.
    I have noticed that these cause vibrations on high speeds

    And then the lathe machine guy finished and polished them for me. And when I fit them. We found out that we will be needing longer studs 😀

    And then I went to Shuba to buy longer studs.
    I found them and bought them for 1.5k and brought them to the mechanic who was changing them for me.

    But unluckily. The studs were slightly thinner than the original ones. There was a possibility that they will turn with the lug nuts.
    Mechanic gave me option of welding them to the hub but I refused and went back to Shuba to change them
