    Hub Spacers Anyone?

    I'm thinking about my wheel gap and what I can do to fix it.



    The obvious answer is to lower the car, but I'm not real excited about that. To me, it looks like the wheels are simply too small for the openings. I'd rather try to fit larger tires on the car and see what that does. I'd need to run some hub spacers to clear my UCA. I'm curious if anyone here has experience with hub spacers that they're willing to share.

    Come on man, we live like wheel gap kings! Anyway, it all depends on how much you want to run. Spacers aren't quite as good as a higher offset wheel as very much will put you passed the hub center lip, you may need longer wheel studs, or you may need some with studs built in which can probably fix the other problems, but typically they'd be real wide and that adds stress to the ball joints and wheel bearings. This website has some pretty good tools to size your wheels and tires: https://tiresize.com/wheel-offset-calculator/

    After seeing your wheel gap, I've realized I have nothing to complain about. LOL.
