Default Wheel Spacers

I was looking for some wheels for my '07 Acura TL Type S and have found a
few I like. Unfortunately, because of the size of the calipers, the wheels
don't fit unless you use a 3mm spacer.

Any thoughts on using spacers?

Bad idea. Shortens wheel bearing life.

Thanks for the reply. I will more than likely go with the Chrome look-alike
wheel offered by Acura. It fits perfect.

A 3mm spacer?? Wow, not much of an increase there. What am I missing here? Besides a brain, of course.
