      I'm about to buy spacers for my R and I'm not sure what I should get...

      The car has stock suspention.

      20mm for the back?

      10-15mm for the front?

      What do are you guys running?

      Thanks.

      Also I have stock wheels on the car.

      With the Aristos I liked the 10 F & 20 R I had.

      With my new wheels (Neuspeed RS10) I think an 8 in the rear is enough i've been looking at 42DraftDesign spacers.

      Am I going to need to buy the bolts for the spacers? I was just looking on ecstuning and theyhave the spacers for sale with the bolts and without the bolts. There's a $25 difference between with or without so just checking to see if I need to purchase the bolts or not.

      Thanks.

      of course you'll need bolts for the spacers.

      Good technical info at the bottom of the page on 42DD's site.

      Bluewater Performance has spacers available that come with extended lug bolts (in either conical or ball seat, iirc). I think Forge is the manufacturer. PM either Gabe or Andrew for pricing and available sizes.

      Length....if you use your stock lugs with a 10mm spacer, you *might* catch 2 threads which is nowhere near what you need.

      I ment to say the difference between conical or ball seat?

      Will either one work or?

      If you're still running Aristos then go with ball seat. If you have aftermarket wheels, most will take a conical seat.

      im running 20mm in the rear. no suspension work on stock wheel setup!
      pictures don't do justice but in person compared to before it looks a lot better!
      i took off the 10mm spacers on the front. There H&R 5x100 HubCentric. Hope this helps in any way

      support and like my VeeDub Motion Facebook Page. Thanks!
