1987 944 Turbo Wheel spacers and longer lug studs

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 trubo; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 58000;

I am looking at rims that have a offset of 55mm. They are 17-7 and 17-9 with 55mm offset. I was told by wheelenhacnement that any thing bigger than 1/4" spacer will need longer lug bolts. Then I talked to wheeldynamics who has the wheels for sale and they said that I could go as big as 8mm without longer lug bolts. The over all objective is to push the wheels out to the wheel lip, within reason. So who is telling me the truth and are adding spacers a smart way to go on my car or will I be messing with the geometery?
