Wheel spacers

#1 by beavis , Sat Dec 01, 2018 8:13 am

Hi all,
Have just purchased a set of 30mm Eibach spacers for my k74. The retailer said they were hubcentric as they have the correct bore (106.5mm) for the hub. I thought they would have a little seat /lip on the front for the wheel to bear on? the chap said i'd be very lucky to find any like that and they had sold stacks of the type he sold me ?
to cut a long story short.....was just wandering if anybody hadany advice, or whether these are all good like matey said ????
can still send them back, if people think they're good I will keep them !
thanks

they should be ok as they will centre them selves up when you bolt them on

Same as with any tyre change, as long as you torque em, and then check/tighten after 50-100 miles and keep an eye on the tyre wear pattern.


Anything is possible, all you need is imagination or own a bank!
