Hi guys, Im just wondering would anybody be interested in having custom wheel spacers made? I can also get PCD adapters at really good prices.

A guide price for a full set of spacers ( 2x15mm / 2x30mm ) to fit the GTIR would be £140 posted. This is for a set of 4 where on superforma you'd be able to get just a pair for around £115. Obviously if i get alot of interest the price might drop a little.

Im just putting this short post up to see if anybody would actually be interested or possibly need some pcd adapters made? PM me if you need a quote on some wheel spacers and im sure we'll figure something out.

I've just brought some FTO calipers so I'll need some 6mm spacers to go behind the disk's.

Its better to go 10mm more than the front ie 20mm front 30mm rear ...

Is it? I always thought that its half on the front of whatever you have on the back. I remember reading Bobs thread about it, ill read through it before i order. Im scared that 30mm will be too wide for me anyway because of my wheels. My arches are too nice to be rolled so might end up sticking with 20mm Smile

Think rule was half on front of what use on back but any of the combo's mentioned would be good.
If changing wheels & get offset right for front then only need spacers for rear really.
certainly can help the handling & matched with decent struts/springs & modena front diff plus decent tyres & sensible size profile/rims the R's handling manners become very very good for very little technical effort.

I thought I'd need the same as a wheel spacer only I need them 6mm thick if that makes sense. They are going directly behind the brake disk to space it out 6mm from the hub.

You mean its going internaly between the brake disc and hub itself .... ? If so you will need the hub measurement ???

FTO Evo calipers are 4mm spacers for clio discs as mr gostek pointed out.
I used standard flat alloy 4mm spacers & machined them down to fit inside disc hat, could mark them up and neatly grind to fit quite easily, 4mm spacers are super cheap & far better than the lazy man washer way of doing it, although washers do work & acceptable for trial run of the setup.
Works really well & if get the calipers free or cheap it an incredible low cost brake setup, use half decent quality discs & carbotech pads & the stopping ability is damn amazing. Good thing to is Discs are easy to find & cheap so keeping it in good order is simple & low cost.
carbotech pads cost more than the calipers, discs & spacers put together :-)
Did use EBC yellow pads on this setup & proved a good road pad at good cost.

I would also be interested in some slip on hub centric spacers in 6mm if your making some up?
Would only need a pair though, any idea on price?

Would these be to go behind the disc? If you need regular non hubcentric spacers i have some in my shed that im looking to get rid off. You dont really need hubcentric spacers for 5mm

guys the spacers do improve the handling characteristics significantly if suspension setup is altered to cater for them

very good price your doing on these mike so well done on that thumbsup

one thing I will warn you of though is that I ran 32mm rears and 15mm fronts on wide arch track car but still had rubbing issues if I was running slicks but cleared on 215 wide rubber (just) so baring that in mind if your car is a stock body I definitely would go no more than 20mm on rear then you would need 10mm on the fronts which reduces understeer by halving front to rear. mine was a full on track car and that was the best handling R I have ever driven other than fast guys car which had great handling too but neither car was really kitted up for road use
so what im saying is that the spacers do help hugely as long as other things are adjusted in line when they are fitted
