Wheel adapters/spacers
« on: October 20, 2013, 08:01:50 PM »
Anyone have experience running wheel adapters or spacers? I installed Brembos on the Legacy this weekend, and my winter wheels don't fit. I can get 06 STi wheels and 25mm spacer adapters for several hundred less than a set of 04 STi wheels.
the bottom line is this, people just need to realize that when they buy cheap CO's [KW on down], they are buying cheap, poorly engineered shocks for the sake of having height adjust-ability. - whitetiger on

Look on eBay for a solid set of spacers. Bought some for my project car. There's a lot of options for bolt patterns, and as far as thickness goes, I've seen vehicles run 3" spacers with no problems. Going with something as thick as 25mm, I'd try and get some with wheel studs pressed in (I went with 50mm on the project car).
