    I'm shocked at the cost of wheel spacers. I remember buying some years ago, and they were like 20 quid a pair. Now they 60 to 100 quid a pair!!!! 100 QUID!!!!! Now I don't consider myself to be a tight asre, but thats around the same as my lowering springs, which I would have thought would take much more engineering!

    Try buying off the classifieds as they tend to be closer to half price.

    Either that or wait for one of the car shows when they're often knocked out cheaper for cash....

    I'm usually a little too impatient to wait for these things, but I think he might have to on this one!

    Tell me about it, I got a set of bbs alloys that need spacers aswell. They ain't cheap, ads that with tyres and I'm looking at 600 just to fit them!

    Na, you have to get hubcentric. Or it'll feel like your wheels about to come off at high speed.

    I've got sets of both hubcentric/ non hubcentric and never had an issue with either! I'm actually running H&R 8mm non hubc. ones atm and they're absolutely fine.

    Never bought a set new myself either, classifieds ftw with spacers!

    I've been PMing mattyboyc about some 10mm spacers, but his are also cracked at the bottom of the spiggot, but thank you for the offer. I understand the crack is caused by them being tightened up with an airgun without being lined up correctly first.

    That is insane money - it's just a machined piece of metal, at the end of the day.
