    Im after a set of hubcentric spacers for my car. its lowered on Eibach Sportlines and the wheels are 7.5j as far as I know.

    Is there anyone in yorkshire who could measure it up for me and tell me what size spacers are needed and also anyone reliable who can fit them for me?

    Additionally, anything I have to watch out for when going down the spacers route?

    All help appreciated in advance.

    To start off with we need to know the offset of the wheel

    I would probably go for 10 or 15. Just be aware that if you space out too much while on springs, there will be alot of scratching against the inside of the fender, when driving around with a couple of friends. Thats not dangerous but its a bit irritating and to me it sounds a bit cheap, at least i felt so.

    12mm rear and 10mm front will be perfect.

    Fit them yourself! If you can remove a wheel you can fit spacers...

    It'll most likely be 10mm front and 12mm rear but to be sure we'd need to know wheel size, width and ET.
