    Hello peeps. Any of you guys running 5mm spacers? Question is did you use the standard wheel bolts? Are they long enough?

    I currently run 15mm, with extended 45mm wheel bolts cos they were obviously needed. But now I'm changing rims all the longer bolts I have are the tapered seat type. But the new wheels I have take the radius type, so the only bolts I have lying around are the originals.

    Also where did you guys get them? My 15mm are h&r hubcentrics, good quality, butobviously 5mm aren't gonna be hubcentric so can I get away with just a cheap set off fleabay? Seen em for £10 for 4.

    Anyone? Ta in advance.

    I'd say get longer ones, the bolts are that length for a reason and 5mm shorter isn't within the tolerance.

    had 5mm hubcentric on my quattro before changing tyre size, by hubcentric i mean the hole for the hub was a tight fit and holes for bolts were spaced at 112
    fitted to front ok but thread for the bolts to go into on rears started further in and only managed a couple of turns
