Yes no s**t the bolt paterns are different thats why you buy the spacer with the larger offset empi makes such a part for use with vw rabbits it would also work on the escort

well you bolt the spacer to the hub and with the correct bolt pattern on the spacer you bolt your new set of wheels to it there very narrow I know that on the rabbit the tires dont stick out very far.

Well im not mexican, and i think those SVT wheels are gonna pretty much fill out the wheelwells, so if they are gonna stick out, and then i lower it like i plan to, then they might rub on bumps....

its ok tho.. bought a window sticker

That's an adapter. A spacer is just a big washer with holes in it.
