Good quality spacers?


Recommended Posts

I would have used the search because I figure this has been asked, but it isn't working for me. I'm just curious as to what would be a good set of spacers to get for my car with stock wheels? I don't know much about them, but I don't want to get anything super cheap that will crack when I hit a bump.

best - don't use one

better - hub centric spacer, it's just a piece of aluminum


Unless you are talking about bolt on spacer/adapter, then look into how the stud is pressed into the spacer


after investing in some good spacer, you are half way there for a set of wheels.

Is spacers cracking a prevalent problem? I really don't know. And I don't know whether it would be catastrophic if they did. I suspect not.


The use of any wheel spacer puts additional strain on the hubs/bearings. So it's best to try to keep them as thin as possible. So your first step, I would think, is to figure out what would put the wheels flush with the car. Also... consider using longer studs versus installing spacers with studs pressed in.

they use alcoa aluminum (semi truck wheels) and made in the good ole United states of America!. i have these and use them on my stockers to clear brembo's. I dont track or drive aggressivly; i understand that it strains the bearings
