    I'm sure H&R do a set for around £100, not sure where you get em from though. Google might help

    Are the eibach ones hub centric? i have no clue sorry i just thought after looking at pics of cars with turbo wheels on coilovers the wheels look a bit lost in the arch when the cars a little low.

    Don't think the eibach are hubcentric. FK do a set of 22mm hubcentrics

    youd be better off with hubcentrics dude - thats what i always use

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/20MM-Hubcentri...item43a629cec8

    also go for 20mm for better effect - means you can use the specific bolts in the kit to mount the spacer to the hub then ur own bolts for wheel to spacer

    instead of longer bolts


    heres my 40mm ones for an example

    I think 20mm would be too wide for me lol.

    The ones i posted are hubcentric, is it just because 15mm isnt wide enough for me to use the original bolts?

    im just not a fan of longer bolts so would rather get the ones that bolt onto the hub like above

    20mm should be perfectly fine on your std turbo rims but guess its each to their own

    id just rather not use the longer bolts method personally
