Wheel Spacers, 20mm? Ichiba Spacers..

Just seen the following spacers CLICKY!

The Normal Eibach 15mm (30mm track widening) spacers don't seem quite enough to me.

Howcome nobody here seems to use these 20mm ones instead?

Nothing to stop you using these 25mm ones on ebay either if your OK with changing your nuts from 1.5 to 1.25 like that of a Nissan...

Nice

How wide can you go before Arch rubbing becomes a problem though?

depends on your camber and the ride height... I was always concerned but as it happens around 36mm seems to be possible with a 15mm drop so I would think 32mm on 30mm drop would be alright..

Re: Wheel Spacers, 20mm? Ichiba Spacers..

Ive got 20mm spacers on my type r. Ill try and up some images if you want?
I was debating going down to 15mm spacers so i can lower the car as i think the wheels will rub with 20mm spacers if the suspension is lowered

I've got a question as I've been looking for some 15mm spacers, I'm not prepared to pay eibach 110 per axle so have been waiting for 2nd hand with no joy. I'm already on ABP -30mm springs so wouldn't go any more than 15mm spacers. Can you use any 15mm spacers with 5 * 114.3 ? I thought they would have to have centre bore of 64 - the ones above eBay have centre bore of 66? Would these really fit without any issues ?


Sorry if this is a really thick question.

Always use the correct centre bore

Or a smaller bore with a spigot ring

Never rely on the bolts and nuts to take the weight of the car , this is not what they are designed to do

Thanks- I thought that I should only be looking for 64. Not worth an accident if something fails.

Sorry to thread starter for asking question on your thread- just had me thinking I've missed out by only looking for 64.

Thanks Stoney

Nothing wrong with the eBay ones but a spigot ring to match the hub up to the alloy correctly is advisable.

Thanks Akin!

Looks very good. Although I think it might rub with the Eibach springs
