    I am having a look at some wheels today that I believe have an offset of 60 so i would need to run approx 25mm spacers on them. Now, what are my options, can i get bolts that are 25mm longer than standard and they run straight thru wheel, spacer and into hub, OR, do I use normal bolts from wheels to spacer and the spacer has offset holes that secure spacer to hub.??
    The wheels are the same pcd as my hub ie 5x112. Oh, and what does hubcentric mean, and why is taht the right one to go for?:ermm:

    I would go for the type that bolts to the hub and you use your pwn bolts to fasten the wheel. The hubcentric spacers are centerting on the hub so less chances of them beeing un-balanced compared with non hubcentric spacers... Get H&R ones or high quality metal ones.

    As your looking at bigger ones make sure the quality is the best (no ebay specials)
