Wheel spacers


Recommended Posts

You measure the hole in the rotor

Mine were 55 mm I think

But my spacers are 54.1mm

Go to the website of the group who make the spacers

And you should be able to find some for your car

I put 15mm spacers on my 98 Celica but I had put on Volk TE37's

These were off a Subaru and were 46 offset instead of my normal 42

This is why I said I had 11mm spacers

Theres another idea

Get some Volks off a Subaru

Best wheels you can get

Though many Subarus are 50mm in which case you could use a 20mm spacer?

For a 30mm offset

I think thats as far as you could go without fenders and steering problems

Are you putting on shim type ones or proper spacers?

Hubcentric means proper ones I presume with studs?

I wouldnt go bigger than 10mm or your steering might get a bit stiff

esp if you have 7.5" rims

You will also need to run a high quality tyre like a Toyo to lighten your steering

And get an alignment done after as it does change your geometry

But yeh, I have 11mm and they are the bees knees

My car feels wider and handles fast corners way better

Suspension is also softer now

Mine are G racing from Taiwan

Very good with 0.05mm accuracy

I did need to grind my studs down to fit my rims on..no worries

I remember one of my spacers was harder to get on as they are tight

And I needed to sand the rotor surface a lot on one hub to get the rust off

And also around the actual hub itself until the spacers sat flat

We then checked them by running a 1/2000 feeler blade around them

After that they were fine when they were removed

But Im sure your car wont have the rust like my 98 model

But we did need an impact driver to undo the nuts as they are

Thin and hard to grip onto with a power bar and socket to remove

Have a look at this thread from Toyotanation for a 2010 rolla xrs

You may need to get your fenders rolled (not hard and looks cool?)

Also I remember that 15mm is the smallest size they make for a proper hubcentric spacer

But I have seen BMW racing cars with 10mm shims

These are WAY lighter and will not rob you of power

I saw them on bimmersport

If you go for shims and longer studs

Make sure you get proper high tensile racing studs

I was thinking..

Dont let that thread from toyotanation put you off

Those guys might be freaking out about nothing

which I find is often the case on these sites

You prob. know your wheels arent supposed to come out past your guards

One way would be to put a spirit level alongside your wheels

and a ruler to measure how much space you have
