wheel spacer problem


Recommended Posts

hi guys ive just fitted some 5mm wheel spacers on all 4 wheels, took it out for a spin and it drives like sh1t. the steering wheel shakes like crazy on uneven roads, and when i pulled out to overtake it felt like i was gonna lose the back end :( (but it drives ok on flat roads its as though every bump is been exajorated)

could it be that the car just needs re-tracking, or could i have bought sh1te spacers. as anyone had similar probs with spacers?

cheers

si

i've got 17inch wheel's i have 7mm on the back and 3mm on the front and she handal's like sh!t off a shovel..

 

..try more on the back as the front's are wide any way...

 

..and are your wheel nut's long enough...

yes the studs seem plenty long enough, did you need your car tracking after fitting the spacers?

did you fit the spigot ring again?? i had a similar as i for got to fit it and there was slight movement so i fitted the ring and then the spacer over it and jobs a goodun :)

 

 

ive just been thinking about this, i noticed when i took my wheels of the little adapters that go in the middle of the alloys came off in the wheels except one which was stuck to the hub, im thinking that i just placed the spacer over the adapter then put the wheel back on :headvswal

instead of puting the adapter in the wheel first :headvswal

dont know if this could be the cuase, im a foookin clutz!!!

il give it a go tomoz.
