Default Wheel spacers on 140

I came across some 17 x 7 5x108 wheels. The center bore is identical to factory wheels and fits the black volvo center caps perfectly, EXCEPT, for the fronts! The grease caps push them out. So im thinking about spacers. What’s the max thickness i can go on a spacer without changing out my wheel studs?

Depends on the thickness of the wheels.

Oh, yeah, right. Alright, what the heck. If I have to remove my front hubs to install longer studs, i check/repack my bearings, and do a brake job while im in there.

Hey, RWC, and chance you know the hub diameter for shopping spacers?

Not a clue 140s wheels aren't hub centric, although the stub in the rear axle is the same as 240s.

These studs and spacers should work on a 140.

We sell a 16.5mm that clears the front hub

I had a similar problem when the aftermarket wheels hit the caliper on my 140. It just needed a thin spacer to clear but I was concerned with the amount of thread engagement so I got a set of these ET/Ultra style lug nuts that have a thin threaded shank.

Not trying to steel the thread, but are 240s hubcentric?

That’s creative. I might just check that out. Thanks for sharing.

I ve heard that 240 grease cup allows a little more clearance than 140 cups. I not have tested that personally.
