Notice the bevel around the hub area - it should be roughly 3/8" wide.
Oh ok. My aftermarket wheels have that little thing on them, but they aren't hubcentric so I had to buy rings and I don't think it'll work after I put the rings on
I would buy some spacers for my Mk1 in a heartbeat, but my RM's are still in pieces because you guys havent had black bolts in stock since December. In for some spacers if I can finish my wheels before show season is over!
So is there any way you could order me 90 of those bolts? Ill even pay $2 per bolt, id just like to finish my wheels so i can drive my car. Hope thats not too much to ask...if it is, could you point me in the right direction to obtain these bolts elsewhere? Kinda frusterating being the lowest customer on the totem pole if you know what i mean.
Thanks for the help!
We are unable to place low-quantity orders, but fortunately more bolts are on order.
It will still be 5-7 weeks before they are available for sale, but be assured they are on the way.
Hey, so I'm a bit of a noob at spacers. Could you give me some advice?
I have an '06 GTI with stock Huffs, which obviously means I have 5x112.
I was just eyeing your BFI 10mm spacers 5x100/112, which I would use on my rear wheels.
Just so I'm clear beyond a shadow of a doubt (even though I read the product description), what else would I need for my rear wheels? Am I correct in inferring that I do not HAVE to buy new lug bolts for the rear for a 10mm spacer? These spacers are hubcentric, correct?
Hope to be buying soon!
Yes, you will need 5x100/112 spacers. These are dual drilled for both applications.
10mm and higher spacers will require longer wheel bolts- 14x35mm wheel bolts to be exact.
Each wheel bolt listing lists what bolts fit what spacers. See listing here: http://store.blackforestindustries.c...o14x35bas.html
This is kind of petty of me, and for that I apologize.
But why did you guys decide to make 4x100/5x100 spacers, wherein the bolt holes have to overlap like that? Why not stick with 5x100/5x112 like half of your spacers appear to be already, and everyone else does? The bolt holes work perfectly together.
I know you guys say it doesn't affect the structural integrity, and I do believe that, in my brain, but it just feels and looks so wrong. I want to want to buy black forest spacers, since i'm almost definitely ordering bolts from you guys, but I really hate that bolt hole thing. I don't know if it bothers me more that the holes are like that or that I can't figure out why that decision was made, but it's making my spacer shopping more difficult than I wish i was >_<
Otherwise, I like Blackforest
The 4x100/5x100 bolt holes have to overlap, so that's unavoidable.
Why do we sell both? It allows us to pad our inventory with a product that works on multiple platforms. This way more spacers are available to more people.
There's no sacrifice to 'performance', so it makes sense to produce both- 4x100/5x100 & 5x100/5x112.
