    exactly no different to neg off set wheels, its the price you pay for a descent looking fitment, and yes im after hub centrics i should have mentioned that as well but most bolt ons are anyway.

    how much do you wanna pay per spacer? theres a few places that do custom ones, would save getting them machined

    what spigot is not engaged? and whast the difference from running 17 x 9 +30's with 30mm spacers than running 17 x 9 +-0.
    the wheels and load are still sitting in the exact same spot as most out face rims with deeper offsets only extend the barrel and mounting face not offset the dish.
    Most descent jap rims will offset the dish and any descent tough rim will have offset inner and out rims and you are only moving the inner spokes in and out.

    Yes i can see there is more stress on the studs but im telling you now its not enough to snap a stud and have you go smashing into a merc on your way to work.
    Like i said i have had 30mm spacers on 17 x 10 sideways at 140km with stretched 255's fed evos and nothing has ever happend, do you know how much stress is on the studs when your putting all the weight onto one side of the car at 140km and its trying to flip the wheels under the car.
    Its not as dangerous as they make it out to be.

    hakhawk cheers dude for the suggestions, i just found a company in the states who do custom one for beemers so i sent them an email to see if they can do some for me with holden centers, just got to go measure them up, there quote said around $180USD for 4 plus shipping which is a wicked price even if shipping is around 100 bucks as long as i can get 4 for around $300-400 then im happy.

    hubcentric wheel spacers engage the spigot properly, thats why you pay more for decent hubcentric ones. and thats what dons vs wants, hubcentric ones.

    thats right with properly designed hub centric spacers the load is placed evenly onto the hub and not the studs, which wont cause any issues.

    Speak with this guy i know he got some that were quite impressive.

    Only thing thats bad with spacers which is y they r illegal is coz some people dont extend the studs long enough so u can get at least 3-4 FULL rotations with ur nuts. if u check them regulary 2 make sure nothing has come loose (which they shouldnt neways) u shouldnt have any dramas. i got em on the VPs rear and they r great

    your thinking of slip ons, there rubbish and un safe, bolt on spacers will bolt onto the hub as if its a wheel, and then your wheel bolts onto the spacers as if its a hub, there is plenty of thread for the nuts, that is not an issue.
