    wheel spacers

    Big sky on 5mm wheel spacers. My car is very neutral right now with a slight tendency to under steer. I would like to dial out the remaining under steer and saw you mention 5mm front Wheel spacers in another thread.

    Questions:

    Which brand and where to get?

    Do I need longer Wheel Studs?

    Im running 225 45 17's on 17x7 Superleggeras 45-48 ET. I have USDM STi springs on with stock struts. Do you think I will rub?

    H&R - they come w/ longer studs (good quality)- 5mm spacer requires longer studs no matter what anyone may say to the contrary- I got mine from here:

    no chance of rubbing w/ that setup as they are up front and there is mucho room

    Actually I wasn't at all impressed with the wheel studs that came with my H&R kit. The knurled end that seats in the hub was quite a bit oversize and I ended up doing a good bit of damage to the studs just to get them in. I instead elected to get a set of ARP wheel studs and am MUCH happier. I ended up using my H&R spacer with them, but I'd use about any 5mm spacer you can get your hands on.

    I wonder if they changed studs, mine were almost identical to the oe ones (save length)?

    the ARP ones are quality no doubt, Nismo also makes a suitable stud (I had the part # somewhere)

    any luck w/ Poltec?

    My H&R Studs were just fine... and as Mike stated like the oem just longer. Not too bad to get them in either, once you find a way that works for you.

    Nothing yet.


    I wonder if H&R changed studs, or if I got a bad batch. They were nowhere near OE quality.

    That's no good, I'll have the wheels off the car tomorrow, I'll go take a look and compare.

    Hey Mike!


    Looking down on top of them, with the top of the picture being the forward part.

    A look from the "rear" of the car.

    Pzary3233, is that the WL ALK? Thougth those were STX illegal.

    BigSky, is a wider front track something to pay attention to more for fine tuning than anything else? How would that compare to something like a JDM limited slip up front?

    I run 3mm spacers up front in the winter so I can use my stock wheels w/my 4pot calipers. No problems so far, but I'm definitely running out of threads. And to no surprise, I've never had a lug nut come loose.

    More than meets the eye.

    thanks for the pics- that'll help

    no those are the WL offset bushings- ST* legal interesting- I got a email from WL asking about alternate orientation- the above adds positive caster ~ .5-/75 degrees here's what they had to say:

    "Hi Mike,

    KCA375 can be fitted in any orientation around the clock, but with
    varying outcomes. If fitted with the offset in the horizontal plane (3
    or 9 o'clock), the result will be caster change. If fitted in the
    vertical plane (12 or 6 o'clock) then the result will be a change to
    anti-lift/dive properties.

    Hope that this helps.

    Regards,
    Wojtek"

    at six o'clock you'd have a ALK of sorts- reducing anti-dive/lift IF one already had lots of caster (say STi or maybe from canted plates) it might worth considering the alternate???

    wider track at least w/ 5mm is a very subtle change- having a lsd up front would be a not so subtle change
