    Spacers

    U ahve brought a pair of spacers for the rear to bring my wheels to a et 40 off set instead of et 45. all I need to know are they safe to use, and will it effect how the wheel is seated espcially on the spigot ring, could cause vibration.

    May need longer bolts but, you should be ok, by checking how much thread goes in once you have put the spacers on.

    I think the bolts should be ok, as they are specalist bolts for the bk 299 as the lug holes are smaller so standard bolts dont fit.

    and they make the wheel in a et 40 any way so I am just hoping, I will try it as soon as I get my jackback as the new one I fetched yesterday dont work.

    IF the bolts are good then you should be ok. The spacer should centre up as you tighten the wheel.

    cheers steve, lets hope the wheels dont catch, I will fit em as soon as the paint has dried on them. this will be fun with a dodgy jack lol, They had no others in stock, so I will have to use a litttle sissor jack

    Get it done proper brett mate, if you use spacers without having them fixed to the wheel permanently (via a single bolt holding the spacer to the back of the mag) you run the risk of something breaking one day...
    If you get them proper, get the spacer drilled and tapped into the mag so you can permanently attach it, because that way the wheel will locate itself properly
