Wheel Spacers

Has anyone had any experience with adding wheel spacers to their rear wheels? Do any problems arise out of adding them?

Cheers.

No problems as long as you don't space too much and end up rubbing. I'm going for 15mm spacers with the standard MV3 18" alloys - by my reckoning that should be just about spot on.

Also make sure you clean the mating faces so you get a good fit. I ran a light honing stone over my hubs before fitting them.

Have a look in the main wheels and tyres forum - there's pages and pages of pictures.
