I need to find where I can buy a pair of hubcentric wheel spacers for my E36 M3 to fit stock M3 wheels for the winter. They need to be like 10mm. I need a store that sells them such that they are in stock.

Anyone have info would be great.
Thanks

Don't buy those crappy spacers and definatly get the hubcentric H&R's that Paul mentioned.

Maybe www.amimotorsport.com will have some FK hubcentric spacers?

Vlad, are you running hubcentric spacers? You told me you had 5mm spacers and those are not hubcentric.

5mm are not hubcentric, 10mm are hubcentric though

5mm spacers technically ARE hubcentric, if the wheel doesn't have a hub face that is too tapered. Think about it, the lip of the hub is still sticking out enough to hold the wheel, only 5mm of it is covered.

spacers themselves are not hubcentric.

And weed itself doesn't get you high, but smoking it does. :huh?:

C'mon man you know what I meant, wasn't trying to be smart about it. The end result is a hubcentric mount for the wheel (or a good high). *smoke*

the question was are 5mm spacers hubcentric. Answer is NO.
Does hubcentric ring on the hub sticking out of the spacer? Answer YES

Anyway, i would say there is not enought of the ring sticking out after 5mm spacer, especially because my wheels(not sure about others) have bigger hole for the hubcentring ring at the begining.


it looks like this

I'd argue that. H&R themselves call the 5-8mm spacers hubcentric, even though they have flat faces. This is because the final result is still a hubcentric mount.

And I already noted that some wheels have tapered faces that may cause problems without the hub lip.
