    spacer & bore conversion help

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    It has been a while since I posted, but I need to tap the collective brain trust of my fellow enthusiasts on a matter I am less than familiar with.

    I am running Enkei Kojan 18x9.5 ET 35 on the 02 S6 wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sports 265/35. My question is as follows:

    The Enkei has a center bore diameter of 72.6 MM and the S6 has a bore diameter of 57.1MM. I need approximately 8MM spacer in order to make the setup work. My question is, are there spacers available that will convert from 57.1MM to 72.6MM and keep the stock 5X112 bolt pattern?

    Also, I had three wheel studs (second bad ECS part I have had fail that involved safety). Can I get a recommendation on a set of proper set of studs that can handle 10MM spacers?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you need hubcentric rings going from 57 to 72 mm.
    And a set of spacers with 57 mm hub.
    Just get a set of 10 mm spacers that have bolts included.
    I know studs are nicer but you only have to do this job twice a year.
    Good luck

    JorisRS6,

    thank you for your quick response. the problem i am having is the hub centric rings do not seem to "seat" fully on the the hub centric spacers. is there a hub centric ring that has a max radius i can look for that will seat fully on the spacers? if i knew how to post photo's i could make this easier.

    Yes pics would make this more clear.
    What do you have now and what are the sizes of the rings and spacers. Do you have a caliper?

    here is the issue i am talking about. you can see there is about 2-3MM of space from getting the hubcentric ring to seat to the 5 MM spacer.

    Clean the spacers first than take some good measurements. Probably need new rings
