empowerd asked about those spacers for my E30 when he went to the Essen Motor Show in Germany. The minamum thickness is 40mm and blody expensive.

Even 20mm is too thick for E30's. My ADR wheels (18" X 7.5" w/ a 42mm offset) with 20mm spacers all around were too big. I think that a 12mm spacer in the front and a 15mm in the rear would have worked perfect for me.

My wheels are +42mm offset. I used a 20mm spacer and they rubbed. Look at my front fender (pic below)...sucker got pulled down under turning and hitting a bump at the same time. And the rears rubbed very slightly on the upper part of the inner fender.

he he, dave my front fender lip bent just like that too, the fender roller doesnt work on the front when i rolled the backs, but a rubber hammer did the trick!!

did you roll the back at all??

Hey Al , hows thing's . Can you make the little hub centric things,
most of them are plastic rings , but I heard that a tire place in concord makes them out of Aluminum ... Do you run them on your car, or are they built on your spacer's ? I know the hub is 57.1 mm, and I think the wheel is 2.9 inches , what ever that is in mm .
Let me know if it's somthin you would like to do or not ! Time and material , let me know or what ever . Thank's John .

johnny, i was already thinking of this but theres no advantage to makeing them outa aluminum or steel compared to the plastic ones, and theres no way i can make a set of 4, for less than 9 bucks, which is what i payed for the ones i have.

Allright then ,looks like I'm goin with the plastic ones too Al . At that price you can do a new set every year or so , I have heard that the heat and what not causes them to crack , how have you found them ?

so fa so good john, i had a set of them on my previous rims as well for 3 years also with no problems, if you dont have them right know with the new rims i highly suggest you dont drive without them, its very unsafe and theres no way they run true if its just centered right know with the bolts.

eh john, i notice you attach a pic on your posts, if you right click on the image you posted click on properties and it will tell you the location of the pic. then go into your user cp and plug that location in the signature box with..

[ img ] at the front and [ /img ] at the back of it with no spaces in between

hope this helps, you wont have to attach a pic every time*th-up*

The reason he can't run large spacers and you can is because of his lack of negative camber.

I ran 18" 42mm wheels with 1" spacers and A LOT of negative camber with no problems.

The width of the wheel comes into account here also. ;)

I just purchased some 19" wheels, so we will se how that goes. I believe I may actually need to raise the spring cup when I install my front coil overs and then install a shorter spring.
