  2. remove the BORE and give that to bore service centre they adjust it ,how much speed you want, only in bore don't go beyond that...

I recently purchased a Hyundai Genesis 4.6 and I purchased somw extra rims for snow tires but they do not seem to fit. I think they came off a 3.8 Genesis but why would they rub against the brakes in...

If they're rubbing on the brakes, it's most likely because with your V8 model, the front brakes are larger than those on the V6 model (it's not uncommon to see this, due to the greater power of your engine and higher speeds the car can reach). A spacer really won't help, because it moves the wheel outward, where you need more clearance in the inside diameter of the wheel. You'll need to find larger wheels to fit your car.
