Best price on a 10mm spacer kit? where to get it.......

do i need to buy longer bolts, or is that only with BIG spacers? if i do need the bolts what length??

sorry for so many questions, i've never dealt with spacers before. And my tires are rubbing on my control arms a little bit. need help. hopefully someone that has went through this already will chime in.............

TIA

10mm is big, yes you need longer bolts. Look on purems.com or ecstuning.com they both have good deals most of the time.

i'm from Davenport, RIGHT outside of orlando. my problem is that my inside tire sidewall is scraping against my control arm. you think i should go with a smaller spacer, I'm pretty sure it hardly rubs., but rubs enough to eff up my front tires.

5mm should be fine, you dont want too much more, it ooks like your sitting pretty low, gonna have to watch out for fender rub.

You want to keep the same amount of thread as it came from the factory. example: 5 mm spacer equals 5mm longer bolt etc...

Yeah if the car is moving and the wheel goes on a 5mm spacer should get rid of the inner clearance issue without pushing it out too far to worry about fender rub

I have a set of 4 hubcentric spacers, new, no bolts though, in 10 mm. Can get bolts at lots of places. PM me if interested.

I just put 10's on mine. I ordered my bolts from Black Forest Industries, for 1.85 a piece. I think I got 1.5" ones.
