Source for wheel spacers?
 
What is everyones favorite current source for wheel spacers for fwd wheels?

I know about motorsport tech and I would get a set from there if I was getting another set to keep on a car, same could be said about a set from IPD. But right now I have a car that I am going to be selling and putting fwd wheels on so while I am not looking to get the cheapest thing on the market I do not want to dump a ton of $ into something.

The ebay spacers with the correct center bore are also m14 studs so I am not to sure how well those will fit the older wheels that use the m12 bolts
https://www.ebay.com/itm/2pc-25mm-1-...wAAOSwgbxfOdjD

The few other sets I find on amazon do not have the centering ring and while I know they work I am not a huge fan of.

Where is everyone elses current fav source for reasonable priced wheel spacers?

And hey you called it out so . . . you do not even have 7/9 studs in stock for the front? and are not the rear's 1/2" vs m12?

Rears are 1/2" (same as 240 stud)

For the front, I would recommend using a high quality stud and enlarging the hub a little bit.
I no longer stock the extended studs that I used to and the demand for 740 parts is so low that it does not make financial sense to make the production run necessary to offer them at an affordable price. I may start offering a kit with a stud as I am describing and include a drill bit with it.

Really so you need 10 lug nuts of each type to put wheels on a 740?

:wtf:

Or is hub drilling Ř the same?

hub drilling the same. Id spec a matching 1/2-20 front stud that way there's no mixing and matching.

I use these, works fine, but not everyone is comfortable with them.

I cannot find Orion Machine, I find Orion Motor Tech but they do not have 5x4.25 spacers.

2turbotoys 10-24-2020 11:01 PM

For $60 I'm pretty sure they won't be hubcentric or have a centering ring. I never got a centering ring with spacers, even with H&R. They come with wheels in my experience. But wheel manufacturers will send them to you.

Homer 10-25-2020 11:52 AM

H&R is a good option. DRA is adapter style, DR requires longer studs

RCA Garage has the best pricing that I've found on these spacers. (I've ordered things from them before, no funny business)

Motorsporttech.com they make custom spacers/adapter in house damn good price too. I paid $270 for 30mm 5x120-5x114.3 with 2 different hub bores.

Chilm 01-15-2021 09:00 AM

The only ones where I rely on:

H&R

And Ben's :lol:

If you have a lathe you can buy the 63.4 all day then punch them to 65mm. Then get a hubcentric ring to adapt from 63.4 to 65. Kinda a pain but works.

Patience, and locate a "riding the project shelf" set of Gil Racing spacers, hubcentric. I run a set on the DD 9 sedan, have another for my 242 project (after I retire). Quality of these parts is outstanding all around. 1/2-20 threads a la 2 series..... use your factory 7/9 metric nuts to attach them, buy some Gorilla 1/2" dress nuts. NLA as you know, they've been out of business a long time. A set of these 25/32mm just sold this week on TB.... so they exist.
