Hubcentric spacers?

Postby kit » 03 May 2016, 21:03

If I were to fit the 20mm Hubcentric spacers on the rear to save me pressing out the studs etc, could I then fit wheels that were ET30 on or would that not work? I have been through Wiki but still can't find the answer, cheers.

Hubcentric spacers?

What width of rim are you planning to use? ET30 is not far off standard but that's with a 5-6 inch rim, so presumably you're thinking of wide wheels which may then cause you issues with your sliding door catching.

Also I believe the standard fitting on these vans is bolt centric not hub centric so I'm not clear what kind of spacer you mean.

The rears are 8 inch so it looks like a back to the drawing board :roll:

Spacers might work just not sure about the sliding door thing.

Best bet is to post details of the wheels you're looking at. Chances are someone here has tried to fit them before and knows the pitfalls.
