mb230s said:I'm confused - the G55 doesn't have wheel spacers (and probably not anything MB sells)? Do you mean the fender flares?
Well, no spacers from MB available (they never had them), you have to order those from an External, like ORC in Germany (www.ORC.de), the set (4 incl. screws) is about 250,-- Euros +shipping+Tax.scarbini2 said:Ok ok! I get it now! It’s a banner, didn’t realize that my mistake and apologies to all for sounding like an A-hole.
Anyway let me start over . . .
Stock 2005 G55K . . . what I wanted was to bring out the wheels of the G55 to give the truck a more aggressive stance, that’s all I’m trying to accomplish here.
So any pix links . . . etc would be appreciated.
Photoman said:4x4abc is correct with what he says - but having said that I have run spacers on cars before. I can't stress enough how important it is to get them for the likes of H&R. Many companies make cheap spacers (not sure about ones for a G) that can cause all sorts of problems.
So welcome aboard
oh yes - why do you want to run spacers?
Ok Ted - now if someone is asking about spacers on a forum like this they usually need some form of basic guidence. By reckomending a company like (and I did not by any means say that no one else can make spacers) H&R keeps things safe. Simple.Ted baldwin said:...........ok, has anyone here actually used hubcentric spacers and had a problem? The maker of the spacer is absolutely unimportant. There two general categories of spacers.........hubcentric and lugcentric. In srteet legal vehicles, you want to be certain that you have hubcentric spacers and lubbolts that are long enough. Your wheel will will sit on the spacer which in turn sits on your hub in a hubcentric non vbrational manner. I don't mean to down play the cautionary note being sounded here but.........oh well.
........machine shops make pullies that run your engines, but they cannot make spacers except if their name is H&R? if one really wanted spacers and the center bore on the Porsche ones are too small, just have a local machine shop make you a hubcentric set.
........People with big brake kits run spacers all the time just to clear the brakes. I have had hubcentric spacers on my E55 for 2 years.
........The long and short story of spacers, is to use hubcentric ones and the lug bolts that are long enough.
