Wheel spacers

Postby Raver » 05 May 2005, 15:27

As im planning on fitting wider arches to the chevette i was wondering where i'd be able to pick up some wheel spacers to push my wheels out to fill the arches?? i know ideally you should have wider wheels but i dont have the money for such things at the moment.

You can get a cast alloy 2" (1" each side) spacer kit for Minis, comes with stud extenders. They won`t fit `cos the thread`s wrong, but it could be worth checking if they can be got with an M12 x 1.5 thread to fit Vauxhall.

Here you go....... The ones on the left of the pic.

Wheels Spacers

Postby TJM » 26 May 2005, 16:52

Hi,

I can supply wheel spacers and the correct length wheel studs for:

2 sets of 10mm spacers and 8 studs for £12.00
2 sets of 19mm spacers and 8 studs for £13.00
2 sets of 25mm spacers and 8 studs for £15.50

(Enough for one axle only- double the price for all round)

P&P £6.50 for 48 hours delivery.

Paypal, Nochex, Cheque, postal order, bankers draft. Please allow 3-7 working days for cheques to clear.

Be sure to check your wheel bearings are in good condition as putting your wheels further out will add further stress to these components.

Regards
Tim

Tim,

I may be interested in a pair of spacers. My aim is not to change too much of my original chevette hatch but I was wondering if I am right in thinking a pair of spacers and the original 13" wheels give the old car a little more sexy look at the rear?

Can you fit these with the standards or do I need a body kit etc?
I really just want to do it to see what it looks like instead of going down the route of bigger fatter wheels?

Cheers,
G.
I loved my car, but she has to go.... :(

Wheel spacers

Hi,

The cheapest option if you only want to see what it looks like, is to fit some washers or nuts of the correct thickness between the wheel and hub and tighten up, this will give you the look. BUT PLEASE, PLEASE don't drive the car, this is purely just to let you know what it would look like.

Remove all washers etc after you have seen it and put everything back to how it should be. This then doesn't cost you anything so you can then decide if you would like some spacers.

Cheers
