Default Need help finding wheels spacers

I just finished up putting in my AMR 19mm sway bar and CNC brackets, and it looks awesome. However, my wheels hit the new brackets, being that they are quite bigger than the stock ones. If anyone is running wheel spacers, who makes them and where did you get them? I need something about 20mm, but if I go to big I wont catch any thread on the lugnuts. My wheels are 16x7.5, but even the stock wheels hit the brackets as well. If anyone else has this AMR setup, could you let me know how you got around this? Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I use a 15mm spacer up front and 10mm in the back (with a 1/2" hub spacer too) behind stock alloy wheels. That puts the face of the wheels just inside the wheel well guards and there is no rubbing even with my lowering springs.

Don't be afraid to knock out the lug studs and replace them with longer studs. It's an easy job and you won't have to worry about not catching thread.

As for where I bought them, they came from ebay. The 15mm pair I bought used from some guy who pulled them off his BMW. The 10mm pair was new. I don't know who makes them and I forgot who sold them to me. It may have been akataspacer? Really, can't remember. Sorry.

You really want to go hub spacers in the back, if not your putting a substanial load on the rear bearings. Look over on 6S there may be a set for sale over there.

Thanks! I really don't need too much of a space, just enough to clear my new sway bar brackets. I'll try and track down some 10mm spacers

Dorman part #610-323. That will give you a 12mm extension over the length of the stock wheel stud. You really should go with the hub spacer though. There are two different sizes available and it is the "proper" way to do things.
