Hubcentric Spacers installed

Post by Snailedit » Sat Mar 30, 2019 9:44 am

So decided to put on 20mm spacers for the rear. I gotta say it looks 10 times better!! Sits perfectly
flush and no rubbing issues. So far the ride and handling feel the same. I am looking to do 15mm up front but have to figure out how to make them fit without cutting studs.

Like the look a lot. Out of interest did you try the 20 mm's on the front and if so was there sufficient room? I'm guessing you may have given this a go and there was/is a problem?

I actually haven't tried. I just feel like 20mm might be too much. But you bring up a valid point. Maybe I'll give it a try to see what it looks like.

Decided to do 20mm spacers up front too and can't be any happier

Hi sorry to bring back this thread after a while. For the 20mm spacer did you have to grind down the existing bolts?
