Wheel Spacers..

Does it really matter what brand name spacer you get? Or does every spacer come in the same quality? Because there's a local place that sells spacers but it's a simple spacer no name no nothing

just make sure whatever spacers you get are hubcentric and it shouldn't matter what brand it is

I have seen first hand cheaper spacers like the ebay generic ones or ichiba break, its not pretty and can lead to a serious accident. Spacers like suspension and breaks is not something i would cheap on specially knowing the difference between good quality spacers like h&r, rs technik and others is only a few dollars.

Are you looking for spacers? If so I have 15mm and 20mm with bolts from vrsf. Only had on car for about a month then bought new wheels. Ill have them officially for sale in couple weeks.

Thanks guys. I'ma pass by today and take a detail look at them. They are hubcentric that's for sure but it was just a plain ol spacer thought I'll ask before jumping the gun.

Thanks for that but I'm actually look for 12mm or perhaps even 10. I actually had 20mm but rub like crazy and I do have 15mm up in front.
