    12mm & 8mm Spacers - Do I need longer bolts?

    I've got some Eibach 12mm and 8mm spacers to be fitted and it only just occurred to me that I might need some longer bolts.

    Do I? If so, where's best to buy them from?

    Cheers

    You will need bolts 12mm longer and 8mm longer.

    Ok, I'm a little confused - Do I need to bolt the spacers onto my hub and then bolt the wheels onto the spacers? I've never fitted spacers before so I have no idea what I am looking for.

    I have got these spacers
    Audi - Eibach Pro-Spacer Wheel Spacer kits Compare our Prices! - larkspeed.com

    Or is it just one long bolt that goes through the wheel and spacer into the hub?

    Thanks for that. D0 you know if I need 17mm or 19mm head? I only ask so that it fits the standard wheel brace in the boot.
