    What size spacers are readily avalible?

    I have just whacked a set 5mm spacers to the rear of my car so the rear is now a et 40, It looks as though I could get away with another 3 mm so it just sits as close to the arch as I can get way with.

    So what spacers can I use? and will I have to get them custom made

    The bolts I have used are fine mate for how far I have gone, Any bigger then I would have to try and source longer studs as these are specially for the bk 299 wheel as the heads are a lot smaller than a standard stud.

    Are you bored with your tyres and wheel bearings then ?

    lol no mate the wheel dosent sit right at the arch mate and looks lost mate, And I wouldnt think 5mm spacers would cause to much strain, and they sit on the spiggot rings perfectly, they fit as good as before.


    Any way I have another 1 1/2 years vauxhall cover, and they have already paid out for rear bearings.
