Spaced out?!

Post by Jk* » Sat Feb 26, 2011 5:28 pm

Where is the best place to get a set of Hubcentric 10mm spacers?

Ive had a look on Awesome, Venom etc...but they dont seem to do Hubcentric just normal ones.

Have also emailed a guy on ebay that is selling Bimeec ones for £59.99 a pair.

Any advice etc...

Please don't get the BImeec ones. That's what the ones I gave you are and you will suffer the same non hubcentric fate (Tom Edge had the same problem with the ones on his bora too).

Um...I may go for 20mm spacers as I think the bolts you gave me also will cater for them- I think they are too long for 10mm spacers.

Anyone got any links for some decent spacers?

What about these:

Made from steel to. I assume these bolt to the hub too.

I have a set of bbs largos 17"x7j and i just used my original bolts as in the e-bay add it says if bolts come out any further than 19mm on the back of the wheel they would be no good and i think mine came out aroun 18mm so they were perfect :esm

Yeah, i think that due to the design of your spacers...looks like they cater for standard length bolts. :wink:
