A few weeks ago I sold a customer a set of refurbed R129 wheels. Due to the car being a '75 (I think) and having tapered front hubs, he had to go with the 25mm spacers. He was very happy with how they turned out. He reports no rubbing issues though he thinks the rear clearance is pretty tight. He did go with 215/55 tires to have a little thicker sidewall. So that probably helped.
The car previously had some hideous wire wheels on it. Unfortunately, I don't have a good before picture.

Well according to this post it looks like I ended up with 4 20mm spacers. Wont really know until I take them off.
Just confirmed they are 20mm. Found my E-bay purchase record.

Well spacers are a pita and actually illegal in some places. JR's experience suggests you may need them for inside clearance but mine suggests you may not.
A trial fit is in order.

JR, the referenced thread in post 4 concludes that ET11 is needed which contradicts your advice in post 3 to use 15 mm spacers (effective ET19).
Meanwhile I gave some bad info in post 2. My tires are 225 not 245.
Betcha the OP is truly confused now.

The wheels in this thread are the same size and ET as yours.

|roncallo||15 mm spacers are optimal for those with rolled fenders and 225 50 series tires. 11mm will work if you don't put wheel weights on the inner rim. 25mm spacers and your screwed.|
