The valve stem is how you fill your tire with air. The mde for your car according to the rim offset. For instance a 5mm spacer would make a +50 offset wheel appear as a +45 offset....because it moves the wheel outward. A spacer is usually used to clear the caliper. Hope this helps.

P.s. Did they send you hub centric rings too?

Valve stems are mounted on the rim so u can put air in ur tire and spacers r 2 increase the offset.

The spacer wont come mounted on the wheel. Just slide it on before the wheel though, and then throw the wheel and and your good to go.
thanks +rep
