Have purchased 5mm spacers for each of the rear wheels on a 430 Cab .... anything I should be aware of before fitting ????

The only thing I can think of is that because 5mm spacers are not hubcentric, you may want to use the wheel guide that came with your MB tool kit to hold them in place as you need to line up wheel, spacer and hub perfectly to get the lugs back in.

Thanks ThrillKill .......

So took the wheel off, wheel guide in, spacer on, then looked at the length of the lugs ..... will 5mm make a difference ???

To me it looks marginal, maybe 1mm short of thread on the end of the lugs ..... dunno, not game to put the spacers in now - will probably need to source longer lugs or am I just being paranoid ???

Has anyone put in 5mm spacers before on AMG 17" wheels ..... would rather the wheel didn't overtake me down the highway !!!!


Cheers

Rob
