    8mm spacers....

    I want to push my wheels out a little bit (15x6.5 et33) and have a set of (6) 8mm non hubcentric spacers. Are there going to be issues as far as the wheel being centered properly? Also what size (length) studs or bolts should I get? Thanks

    so the spacers are the wrong size? i'm not sure if there would be noticeable adverse effects by running non-hubcentric spacers with your wheels. you would want bolts that are like 8mm longer btw.

      It depends a little on the wheel as well. If the wheels are flat on the mounting surface then you 'should' be ok. If you have them, mount one up and see how much you have left on the hub. I am running some .25" spacers which is 6.25mm and there is enough of the hub to center them. So you should be ok.

      if there is very little hub then just make sure you tighten the bolts equally...

        Yeah that'd make sense shoulda done simple math myself.... They are just flat spacers w/ no raised part (make sense?) Thanks

          Usually 8mm spacers cause vibrations. There not be much/any hub left to center the wheel.
