Spacers, studs and bolts

Post by mic_VR on Sat Oct 25, 2008 10:57 am

First, Spacers.

What do people use? and is there a general rule as to which are safer. Hubcentric or just normal spacers?

Second, Studs and bolts.

Have people converted their hubs over to studs and nuts rather than the standard bolts? I can see the advantage of doing the conversion from an ease of fitting point of view and I can see how it could be deemed safer.

Thoughts and feelings guys and what combination do people think we be best when I'm trying to put 350bhp through the front wheels??

Cheers

Mic, might be worth mentioning which wheels, offset etc you have and what you are trying to achieve Wink

I hate spacers with a passion. Trying to lift the wheel on with your knees while you use a screwdriver to line the spacer and hub up and trying to get a bolt in with the other hand....

Indeed, so I think studs would remove this depression..
