Pushing my luck with 5mm spacers?

I was running stock tires on stock rims with stock suspension and 12 mm rear spacers. I just installed 295 35 19’s PSS and they was a lot of rubbing. I removed the spacers.No rubbing. I would like to push out the stance a bit but spacers under 10 mm don’t come with the rim for the wheel to rest on. My question is, 5 mm still leave enough of a rib for the wheel?

Yes they will have enough of the hub to rest on, however I would still use a stud conversion kit vs re using oem bolts.

Not if the 5mm came with longer than stock bolts. They should be approx longer than spacers are thick
