Don't ever use cheap spacers (or any spacers possibly?)

Recommended Posts

If I were to use spacers, only bolt on hub centric, or get better fitting wheels. I would never put Chinesium on somewhere so critical to your survival.

I wouldnt just not trust just cheapo spacers, but spacers not made to the spec of your bore diameter or specd to your car. 

Best/most ideal spacer setup is to use nismo extended studs with hub centric Billet spacers that center and extend out from the factory bore. GKtech stuff is good.  

That being said, ive used the bolt on just jap stuff and it seemed fine too, endured launches, mountains and all.

There's no reason to use extended studs on any bolt on spacer. None at all.

Ok, so, the seller has replied to me finally. It seems my hub lip is 12mm and their spacers are 10mm. That explains I guess how the lip is ripped off the rest of the spacer.

Of course they're blaming me for this. :D

Measure twice, cut once.
