Make sure they have a center ring to center the wheel on the hub or you will have problems centering your wheels properly and problems with broken lugs.

ill warn you now, wheel spacers are very dangerous, also very hard on front end parts, check them often to make sure they are tight, also be sure to inspect them for cracks

A better solution is to adjust your wheel back spacing so you don't need spacers. If you're rubbing the back spacing is wrong or you need to do something to the vehicle to allow them to fit (lift, get a smaller tire, or trim the wheel wells).

Edit: You can always go with a wider aspect ratio instead of a taller tire as well depending on what you are trying to do.
