Yep, although the thickness of the spacer you need depends on your particular alloy and offset. Mine's currently got 5mm spacers on, and that gives me about 2mm clearance between wheel & caliper.

Wheel spacers

Hi there,

I was running some wheels with 10mm spacers all round with longer studs. I would say that this was a mistake. Now i have bought wheels that fit properly and its like a different car (better).:smthumbup

if you really want to use spacers,then go for hub centric spacers not the universal type, try john at TSL, cheers des

Im glad this came up, as having same problem.. I love my wheels but would need 8mm spacer to clear caliper and longer studs, but am not sure how bad the handling will be, can only assume it will suffer:cry:

Hello Scott, hows things?

I was in the same position as you not long after i bought the wheels but the brembo calipers are so wide you would need very thick spacers for clearance. Ended up going for 330mm AP's as they just cleared the wheels.

The easiest way would be to change to wheels off a newer evo but the comp's suit the car so well!

Personally after my experience yesterday with my wheel shearing off I would say that if you're going to use spacrs then make sure you get the best wheel studs you can buy and definitely use hubcentric spacers.

Hi Scott, new car is great, hope your treating my old IV well:smthumbup

There is an IV local to me with evo 5 wheels in the same gun-metal colour as the comp's which looks really well.

Hold out for a decent price for the compomotives if you sell them - they werent cheap!
