    Hi all,
    I am looking for the possibilities of using wheel spacers. 5 or maybe max 10mm. And maybe only on the rears, since front seems good
    Do you guys have any experience, using spacers on a 7th Generation?
    This is how it looks right now:
    f27s4h.

    Any advise or recommendation would be appreciated.

    It's not something we can be particularly competitive on at the moment: H&R Trak+ 5mm at around £80 per pair or 10mm at around £120 per pair.

    The only other option we can supply right now are Tegiwa 15mm spacers at £80.

    @H-Tune: Thank for the info.
    If I will be using H&R 5mm spacers (or any other brand 5mm spacers), will it be necessary to use other bolts etc? And is H&R a good quality brand?

    I think H&R have TUV.
    But for 5mm I won't bother.
    I would like something like 15 or 20mm.
    how much do they cost for all 4 wheels?

    @dinoc: Would't 15-20mm (each side) result is 2much wear on bearings etc? Also you definitely will need longer bolts.
    Unfortunately there is not much info regarding using spacers on the forum

    Well not sure about stress in time, I have a buddy with 20mm spacers and he put almost 200k km with them.
    Regarding stress I think it might be the same thing like having aftermarket wheels. For instant a wheel with 8x17 ET 48 or ET40 will push the exterior lip of the wheel with 20 and 28mm on the outside compared with a stock wheel 7x17 ET 55

    @dinoc Good to hear that.
    Did your friend use special bolts, do you know how he fitted the spacers?
    Are the stock wheels 7J or 7.5?

    Yes you need longer bolts and he uses the stock wheels 7x17 ET 55

    A lot of spacer kits come with extended studs, it depends on the type. Some are literally just plates with straight through holes utilising your existing studs, at greater depths they'll require extended studs (we have ARP and other brands on the site). Then there's plates that screw onto the existing lugs to secure but then have new studs coming from them which become your studs to bolt up to.

    The image below shows you various types:

    H&R are a great brand, with such a small amount of spacing you'd be fine on standard lugs one would assume.

    That's Hardrace bud :Smile:
