Query for the VAG boys - wheel spacers

A colleague is trying to source a set of spacers for the front wheels of his Leon.

He has a set of Leon Cupra R alloys and would like to use 5mm spacers.

He has a set that he tried but they don't have a central guide flange, relying solely on the wheel studs - which he says causes some vibration at about 80mph.

Anybody know if you can get a set of wheel spacers with central guides in 5mm size ?

He assures me the hubs are pretty constant across the VAG range.

I had this issue as well with some spacers.
Take the time to torque the wheels on in a star pattern (or similar if its a 4 lug) little bit by little bit, getting tighter every time. This took my wobble away easy as pie, and took less than an hour for my front two wheels.

He could do with some hubcentric ones:

Thanks.

The ones he has have a tapered flange for the face that mounts to the hub, but just a flat face on the outter facing - nothing to centralise the wheel on.

I can't see from the e-bay image if they have a flange on the outter edge for locating the wheel ?
