Default Where to buy wheel spacers?

Anyone know where to buy some of these? 4x100 is a pretty common bolt pattern, so I imagine that someone would carry them for less than the $50 a pair sps wants.

I imagine if it fits a Civic, it'll fit a S-series. There's TONS of Honda stores which are equivalent to SPS/Saturn.

If you have a first gen, the rear wheels are waaayyyyy in there. If you want real spacers let me know, but they aren't cheap at all. 25mm instead of 5mm. The 5mm ones are flimsy and don't really bring out the rear enough imho. With the 25mm ones, you will want to dial in slightly more front camber, though, to preserve your turn in. However, the rear will track out turns much better with the spacers. Check out my rear track, with small stock wheels and stock offset, and just 205 width tires.

Keep in mind if you buy non-Saturn specific spacers you may run into issues with the center bore. If the spacer's centering nose is a different diameter than the Saturn center bore, your rims may not center well, or not fit on the spacers. It can be worth it to purchase spacers designed for Saturn application.

another thing to consider is spacers take up some of the threads normal used for the lug nuts.

yes, but I know you can use the C4 Corvette studs to fix that problem.

very good site, and immediate response, I was quoted 200 for two 2 " spacers for my ION, these are not just pieces of flat aluminum, they are a whole hub with an eccentric hub that your wheel fits over for a like factory fit, this is the strongest and least runout style of spacer.

Not if you use re-stud spacers.

Mine were around 120 and have their own studs.

Where did you buy your spacers from Ian? I'm looking for some larger than 5mm spacers so I can fit some 225 R compounds with carrera coil overs. Currently with my 205 V700's and 2 degrees negative camber, its a tight fit...

I have the exact same set of H&R spacers that Ian sells collecting dust (one set of 2 spacers, each is 25mm) that I will let go for 80 dollars + ship. I just need to get them off my hands because someone said they'd buy them through me, so as a favor I bought them, then they reneged and left me to shoulder the bill.

Anyways, they've been sitting around doing nothing. I hear you might have to machine out the center hub, but I cannot confirm or deny it.

I need to get rid of em so email me at midpennmotorsports@yahoo.com if you want it. If you want another set to match it let me know but they would go at full price (105 + ship).

I'll let you know on the spacers. I should be getting my 225's mounted later this week or next week. I want to test fit them first to see how much clearance I need.
