    Yes, another spacer question....

    Hi all,

    I've finally decided that I'm fed up with my OEM BE wheels sitting so far in the arches (ET54) and I'm going to buy some spacers.

    Question is, I was going to go 10mm and 12mm as it's the most popular choice, however 10mm and 12mm spacers are almost double the price of 8mm ones. I'm thinking about going 8mm and 10mm instead as it'll be over £40 cheaper overall!

    The only thing I'm questioning is, is that 2mm actually that noticeable as I've not seen many standard wheels with 8mm and 10mm spacers?

    Thanks,
    Ethan

    A reason for the price difference is that the 8mm ones are not hubcentric.

    I did think that but on DPM's website, it says that the 8mm H&R Trak+ spacers are hubcentric?

    sorry to drag up an old thread but how are you finding the spacers? any rubbing at the rear?

    Do you have any photos of your car with them on? as i am not sure what looks best on lowered standard Sline wheels :0
