Spacers

Anyone know where the best and easiest place to get 15-20mm spacers from? Any shops in Melbourne area that can sell them to me? Ive seen heaps on ebay from the states but am not sure about quality etc.. Any recommendations? i want the best quality!

Some of us buy wheels with no real understanding of offset and realise our wheels look crap without spacers.

Check leagilities too, I know they're illegal in QLD. I think NSW and VIC might be ok to a certain point but wide ones are very noticeable to a copper willing to impound your car

I recommend these from H&R - they come with the required bolts to mount to your car - and you can use your OEM bolts to mount the wheel. http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-20...cers-pair.aspx

Pm sent.

Which one offers you the higher quality? I can't get rid of high speed wheel wobble with these bullshit burger motorsport ones and I won't to know if changing the spacers to something of a higher quality could rectify it.

If you're interested, I'd be willing to part with my 20mm H&Rs bolt on that use the original nuts on your OEM wheels as well. Used for 1000km only.

I'm running the standard 161's I don't want aftermarket wheels as my missus drives the car and curbs them. I just want the rears pushed out a bit more.

Thanks for the offer dude I just think that 20mm is a little too much I don't wanna go any more than 15. Thanks anyways!

I didn't really like the H&R ones cause they're hard as fck to remove cause there's no 'bevelled edge' or a slot to get something in to wedge it out.
