Is there a DIY for spacers?

I know it sounds stupid but I'd love if someone could make a DIY to show the proper way to install spacers. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

there probably is but its simple..

1) clean all the rust on the hub

2) make sure the holes are aligned and use a hammer or mallet to hit it fit snug with the hub

3) install wheel and make sure u torque it to specs..( highly important)

if u havent gotten spacers yet. i recommend rennmotorsport spacers. they are hubcentric, comes with extended bolts and works perfectly. no vibration. also they are the cheapest ive seen.

Thanks for the reply. That's pretty much what I was thinking. I actually picked up so macht schnells- 12s for the front and 15s for the rear. Need to look up the specs on the tourque.
Where should I apply anti-seize?

I put an antiseize on the hub, back and front side of the wheel spacer. This way you can remove it in the future. Also before putting the spacer flush center it by putting a couple of bolts and centering the spacer. Good luck, it seemed to make my car handle better. I had the 189 wheels 15mm front and 18 mm rear. It looks perfect with it.

Thanks!

Havn't had time to put them on yet. I probably won't until I get back from Montreal in a couple of weeks. From what I can tell so far they are excellently made, but I have read a lot of stories about people having trouble with them getting flush. I got them secondhand, so the guy before me never had any problems.
