are you looking to lower your car?

the front of my black s class was considerably higher than the back after i put the 20' wheels on it...so i got hte #1 shim pad while the back had the stock #3 shim pad. it was an 8mm shim pad and lowered the car another cm or two. is that what yer looking for?<br> <br> -erik<p>cx544033-d.alsv1.occa.home.com

Nick..they make 5,15,20,25,30 mm but 15mm and thicker require longer wheel bolts......

<br> call www.autoclass.net and ask for GASTON. I just got my 5mm but i'm gonna return it because it not thick enough.<p>66-42-123-156.lsan.mdsg-pacwest.com

Nick, spacers cost too much (Labor), it'll be better just get smaller rims or tires...

just a suggestion....<p>proxy4-external.alsv1.occa.home.com

i bought mine from these guys. i don't use them anymore but when i did...

they worked great. no vibrations were present. the most important issue when purchasing spacers are to make sure they are HUB CENTRIC. <p>adsl-63-203-96-93.dsl.lsan03.pacbell.net

Bruce...spacer are most of the time have nothing to do with width of the rim but the OFFSET of......

<br> the rim. You can install 16 x 7.0 rim but if the offset is wrong then you use spacer to push it out toward the fender.<p>pixie.chulavista.lib.ca.us
