    Glad you checked in and LOVE the fact that you still make parts for us.... I'm really interested in a set, but not in a big hurry as we are ONCE AGAIN waiting to hear some information on my wife's contract at her work....

    i bought the car with wheel spacers already on the car. I was worried about the bearings. I am not sure if they are hubcentric. is there anyway to know if they are or not? also i noticed a bit of vibration over 80 miles an hour on the highway. i think this is do to the spacers. thoughts?

    If you pull a wheel off & the spacer fits snug on the hub, it is a hub centric spacer. If it moves it is not & could be your vibration. You could also have a slightly bent wheel. Have the bal checked & ask if you can watch or tell them you suspect a bad tire or wheel. Some shops have people that will look at the tire & wheel spin & some don't look. Or if you put your vehicle up on jack stands & run it in gear & look at the wheels & tires. A slight movement is ok, but if you see a definite change, there is a problem with your spacer (if you have not checked them out first), tire or wheel. Hope this helps

    Kevin, Do you still run these wheel spacers? How is it when the car is fully loaded? Does the car get dirtier with road spray now that the wheels are wider than the mud flaps?

    Thanks.

    Yes I'm still running these adapters. I've noticed nothing negative in terms of rubbing or ride quality. the rears of our cars sit high enough on the stock ride height that even fully loaded, the tires don't even come close to rubbing anywhere when going over bumps or anything. when I moved last year, my car was fully loaded and then some and handled the potholes and bumps of NYC like a champ.

    I do think there was more road spray splashed up though with the wheels sitting further out.

    I apologize for bumping a 3 year old post, but just wanted to inform everyone that the 10% discount still applies when you call-in to Motorsport Tech for your wheel spacers / adapters. It was an easy transaction and Lenny was very nice/helpful. I got the same setup as Kevin; 20mm front, 25mm rear. Lenny said it should take about 7-10 days to be completed as they are made-to-order.

    I'd be willing to do a second thread and/or add onto Kevin's thread on my experience with this setup as well if you guys are still interested!

    Congrats! You'll love the way that the car sits with that setup. With the offset of the stock wheels, it's perfect.
