Hubcentric Wheel Spacers
Posted 11 November 2009 - 10:02 AM
I heard that they are the 'safer' of the two types, so to stay clear of the slip on spacers.
Thanks for any help.

they're safe enough for a street car, just very illegal and stand out like dogs balls. what i did is bolted mine onto the rear hubs, cleaned up the spacer and the rotor base with sand paper and painted them both in black caliper paint. you can hardly even notice that there is a spacer on there because the rotor base and spacer look like 1 piece, and the caliper paint is pretty durable when baked on with a bit of braking.

Personally i wouldn't go Just jap or ISC's!

I'm reppin JIS non-hubcentric Japanese forged alloy ones and couldn't be happier!

Got home, got the wheel off, put the spacer on, bolted her up and then noticed that the hub studs dont sit flush with the spacer, they are long enough to poke through, about 10mm.
So when i went to put the wheel back on, the wheel sits against the studs, not the spacer.
Now, do you think this is a simple matter of just getting 30mm spacers? I spoke to Just Jap and they said to come back and they will sort it out for me one way or another.
Just thought i would ask you guys first and see what you thought.
Either way it looks like im going to have a set of 20mm spacers for sale soon, as because ive already had them on the car, Just Jap cant take them back.
Again, any help would be great.

If you do go larger 30mm spacers, you need to think about track and scrubbing.

i should really get a hub ring that fits the spacer & my rims.
Posted 16 November 2009 - 05:05 PM
Haha i was seriously thinking about doing that.. But then thought what happens if i want to take the spacers off.
Its all good, went down to Just Jap today n swapped them for 30mm spacers. Just have to wait for them to come in. Spewing coz i wanted them to be done for the cruise.

Yeah i was thinking of ordering them in and putting the store credit that Just Jap gave me towards a new, less 'police attracting' exhaust tip
Posted 17 November 2009 - 03:22 PM
