Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on

For WTB threads

-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

          NO. You can't I have quoted below my emails a 2 weeks ago between 42DD and myself discussing exactly this.


          Cliffs- 42DD only offers modular hub rings on their adapters at this time. They wouldn't even quote me a custom set of compatible spacers with modular rings like the adapters I just bought.


          "Can you manufacture wheel spacers with interchangeable centering rings to be compatible with your adapters? (I just got a set and love them BTW)

          I was thinking last night that if so I could buy one set of spacers and several sets of rings to use with several sets of wheels instead of having to have multiple sets of spacers sitting around. I understand that the cost would have to increase due to the extra machining required ect.


          Thanks,

          "Erik,

          Unfortunately that design will not work to well on spacers, there is not enough material on most of them and would require a whole new design. You could use different aftermarket center rings for each set of wheel which would essentially do the same thing for a fraction of the cost. You would just need centering rings (not the ones we machine, but ones like tunershop sells that go from 57.1 (our centerbore size) to whatever your aftermarket wheel is.

            Ha, the coincidence of this statement. I JUST spoke to Ethan about this as he double checked my order specs.

            Essentially, I ordered a set of adapters:
            4x100 with 57.1 center bore adapting to 5x120 with 57.1 center bore

            Keeping the small center bore on the wheel side will give me freedom of using any 5x120 wheel regardless of their center bore size. Then I'd easily just buy sets of centering rings to use in conjunction with the wheel adapters.

            Simple and solid.

              Somewhat simple, not really as solid.


              Here's an example. I have several sets of spacers all 57.1 center bore and all set up for 57.1 center bore. Then I get my hands on a set of lightweight wheels for a miata, or a mini that need spacers to clear my brakes. . . My entire drawer already purchased of spacers in no longer useful b/c the center bore on both sets of wheels is smaller that 57.1. ;)


              That's the exact reason I'm asking about spacers set up like their adapters are set up.

                i interpreted that question to mean adapters - people (incorrectly) use the term interchangeably fairly often in my experience. even if it he did mean spacers, he didn't really clarify if he wanted spacers for an acura or spacers with hub rings that would fit both a bmw and an acura.

                a lot was left up to interpretation there - the safest bet is always to send me an email.

                  Sorry about that. I was excited about these when I posted my question. I was hoping that I could get the 25mm spacers (4x100) with the removable centerbore. The Acura wheels I have are made with a smaller center bore than the BMW wheels. Therefore they will not fit on the e30 hubs.

                  I didn't realize that only the adapters had the removable centers. I guess ill spend the time this summer and machine my own

                    Ah, key sentence right there. You're trying to go from a 57.1 to a much smaller center bore. That can prove to be a little difficult. Good luck lol

                      I'll probably have a friend make me a set compatible with their rings for this season, but I'm hoping if enough parties show interest that the guys at 42DD will change their minds, and look into producing them to be compatible with their adapters.

                      I just saw an excellent opportunity for 42 Draft designs to really provide some innovative spacers like they have with their adapters. I have no problem getting spacers made that will work, I'm just trying to end the cycle of always seeming to have the wrong set of spacers on hand when fitting new wheels.

                        the 42 draft guys are legitimately responsive to feedback - if it's a good idea and there's a demand for it, they'll make it happen.

                            Great product! I'm in for some 4X100 to 5X120. I will be emailing you shortly with my specs.
