Default New Wheels

I have some new rims coming. They are 18 x 7.5. I wanted to stay with the factory size. Never been into big rims on cars. Plus i wanted to stay on the performance side of things. I was wondering what wold be the best spacer size to go with them for the front an back. i want to push them out a little more maybe almost even with the fenders so they don't look so tucked in. Anyone have any suggestion's...

7.5 wide doesn't help matters. What is the offset and you want performance but adding spacers is not really performance, not good for your car but ok. What is the offset??

You will need a big ass spacer to push those out flush. Think of it this way. A wheel that is 10" wide with a 35offset sits flush, you are 2.5 inches in. I would not recommend my worst enemy a spacer that big. Its fine that you want a 17 inch wheels but I would have went with a 8.5 at least if you wanted flush and then a smaller spacer.

They are 18 inch wheels. I don't want to push them out that far. Just a little more than they are stock...

Ok. Well with the 18x7.5 35 offset. Waht size spacer could i get for the front an back to make them not look so tucked. They don't have to be flush. Just sit out a little farther than factory...

Well got my wheels on but have a small issue with the front. I had the same issue with my 06 spec-v a few years ago. My front wheels don't have enough clearance to push the center caps on. it's just enough for it not to snap on. The company said they would over night some spacers but i wasn't confident about that. so i ordered some 5mm spacer. These should fit with out extended bolts right? These are just slip ons for now. Eventually i was thinking 15mm for back an 10mm for front.. Hubcentric of course...

5mm should be fine. Beyond that you would need bolt on

Yup what he said.
It's just saddens me that people still do this considering all the help that is available here. All you have to do is ask and you can get some nice 18s with the right width and offset , trouble free. Spacers are not good, you will prematurelly wear out your hubs and a lot of stress is applied on the studs.

What offset do i need for a 18" rim to fit without spacers.. Having aftermarket rotors wouldn't cause that would it... My rims came with a 35mm offset.. But the caps wont fit without spacers

Were the spacers universal? I had some 5mm universals that I was running with the stock 18s and had no vibration at any speeds. Just make sure if they are universal you line them up good before you tighten the lugs.

Did they send you 4 5mm spacers? If you put two on each wheel then that your problem. You basically have a 10mm spacer on each and don't have enough threading on the studs to tighten the lugs properly..thank god you did not loose a wheel or two. They sent you 4 thinking you needed one for each wheel.

No they sent me 4 1/8 spacers... So i tried one an the cap still didn't have enough room. So i put the other 1/8 on an the cap fit an still have plenty of lug space. But im thinking since they are 2 seperate spacer they are rubbing against each other an that is causing the noise. I ordered 2 5mm spacer myself but i don't know if it will be enough since 2 1/8 spacer are about 1/4 an 5mm is about 3/16... Yes an no raz. I have put plenty are rims on in my time but have never had this much of a problem the rims fit perfect but the damn center caps are being an ass

For one they are not rims, they are called wheels. Two, is the hub on the wheels the same as the hub on your car or is it bigger? If its bigger then you need hubcentric rings. Three, you are not supposed to stack spacers, no matter how small they are. Four, anything bigger then 5mm spacer requires longer studs, period! Don't play with your life.

yes they sent me the rings to put in the rim.. That is what it's called around here.. But i will say wheel... It's just the front wheels having the problem the back caps pop in no problem. But the fronts need about 1/4 of an inch to fit. 2 1/8 is close to a 1/4.. So i think my 5mm i ordered might not fit or could be damn close...

Okay, I had the same problem with the wheels in my sig although they are +42 offset and all the wheels sites say they are a perfect fit my caps would not go on the fronts. So instead of spacers the wheel shop use a cutoff wheel and cut down the center nut and the caps went on. Now if I ever have to replace my axles I will have to do it again.

Yeah the rear is fine because you don't have axles coming out with a cotter pin to be in the way.

Its hard to say, when I had my wheels put on I just happen to have the spacers in the trunk and they did a test fit and the cap still would not fit properly so they went the route of cutting down the axle. You can try the 5mm

Its hard to say, when I had my wheels put on I just happen to have the spacers in the trunk and they did a test fit and the cap still would not fit properly so they went the route of cutting down the axle. You can try the 5mm
So i went to the local auto store today an bought some new spacers. Which are still slip on.. They are made a lot better than that cheap stuff they sent me. An still same problem with the grinding an vibration's. Although it did improve things. but i still was not happy. I returned them an i ordered some ichiba 10mm hub centric spacers.. An of course the longer studs come with them... This should take car of the problem. An maybe have the tires balanced again.. Just an case they were not done properly... right now i am rocking no center caps up front..lol... But rides great... Now so this doesn't happen to me again. Anyone know what size wheel will fit the fronts with no spacers.. I currently have 18's with a 35 offset an i know they don't work without spacers... I am thinking 20's down the road an keep the 18's for winter

Default Re: New Wheels

Well in all of this I have to say you didn't post a pic nor the wheel model. I would almost say that the issue is not just the wheel offset but the design. The center cap on some wheels just sits simply to recessed which is another reason a spacer is needed. I would choose your next wheels with an offset you like for the width of the wheel as wheel as the center design.

I would also check the hub bearing the next time you have the car off the ground. Make sure they were damaged from running with the double spacer set up if you still have vibration and grinding noises.
