Default Hubcentric Wheel Spacers

I have a 95í 940 estate and I recently bought a set of Columba alloys with 205 width winter tyres fitted. The backs went on ok but the front need spacing by at least 20mm which got me thinking. The way the backs sit currently look a bit pants and would look better if I spaced them as well.

Whatís the widest adaptor anyone has run or has heard someone else running without them leading to issues. Iíve found a company that makes them to order and can go up to 60mm which would sort the problem out but Iím a bit skeptical about them being so big?!

25mm front and 32mm rear used to be the special sauce around here for running FWD Volvo wheels on a RWD Volvo.

I've got 25mm spacers all around on my 95 944 and things look OK, but the rear could use a little more push out.

https://www.motorsport-tech.com/ is the company I used and got here super quick

I was running 1.5 and I ended up having alot of issues on the rear tires
Since then I switched to 25mm all the way around and never had an issue since
I do agree 25 fronts and 32 rears look better

Thanks for the ideas guys, 25 up front and 32 round the back does sound good.

I will eventually be running banded steels which will need spacing all round. I’ve ordered 1 wheel to get my fitment and measurements decided and then I’ll order the spacers, as good as the motorsport tech ones sound I will probably try my luck on eBay and report back with the results.

I run 25/25 spacers on my 242 with 17" Tethys. I bought a set of Ben's spacers and extended wheel studs so I didn't have to do the bolted on spacer that you bolt on the wheel too. Ben's stuff is super nice.

Have you got a link to these spacers?
