Where can I get spacers and how much?

I've pretty much decided on the wheels I want to get and I might go get them on the weekend. I won't say what they are yet, but I'll say they're off the AU series so they're obviously AU offset.

Now what I want to know is, where can I get spacers and how much do they cost? Is there any particular brand or make I need to get? Has anyone else got them here?

I know they are illegal and void insurance but I've also got cut springs. I probably wont drive it much next year anyway, probably only on the weekends and stuff so don't stress!

Re: Where can I get spacers and how much?

dont get cheep ass spacers, get the legal (yet not liked/approved by insurance) hub adapters. Will run to arround $3-400 for the 4.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

I'm pretty sure the Tyre Factory in Dandenong has them...


Cheers,

Most tyre places should have them. I know that City Discount Tyre Stores in Adelaide have them.
Otherwise AutoBahn also stock them. And at half the price of the Tyre Stores. But I only found this out AFTER I bought some.

Buy a whole bunch of washers and pack the wheels out yourself :)

I take no responsibility for loss of life or limb if you do this :)

Re: Where can I get spacers and how much?

Dont bother with spacers. I wouldnt trust em in a burnout, so theyre no good to you lol

Get a set of hub adapters.

I can get you a set for 250, possibly less.

PM if u interested

Also i might be able to get more discount if u get tyres as well
