Spacers

i just put some 8mm spacers on my xf to bring the back rims out a bit more. is this dangerious? could the wheel nuts come lose or anything? i took it for a drive and didnt hear any bad noises or anything.

Re: Spacers

AS far as I know, spacers are illegal in all states. Your insurance company will probably have a fit if they found out about them.

Re: Spacers

i know their illegal but i cant see the cops ever finding out. i took them out anyways, theres ment to be these add-on hub spacers that bolt onto your existing ones that are legal. anyone know about these?

Re: Spacers

I think you are legally allowed to have 5mm spacers

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Re: Spacers

the only legal way to have spacers is to have them bolted to your hubs so they are one not allowed to be free moving.
