I would like to push my wheels out to edge of fender lip. I like D3 hub replacement, but would rather just buy spacers as its an easy DIY. Can anyone suggest the correct bolt pattern and spacer size? I am running stock rims on my Vagon.
TIA

D3 sells spacers, am I missing something? (It wouldn't be the first time to be sure)

They sell them all over online. Nice aluminum ones or steel in various widths.

5 x 120MM, and 1" would be 25Mm thick then. I wouldn't go too wide or you'll mess up the geometry of the tire center lines.

Whatever spacers you ultimately decide upon, make sure they are hubcentric with a 67mm center bore.

I don't know about those, but 25mm is going to be about 12mm too far... and for that price I would just go with the tried and true D3 spacers.

Ok, 1" = 25mm?, baabootoo suggested 25mm, and u are saying 25mm thick are 12mm too thick? Sorry, but when I go on the D3 sight, H&R are the brand they carry for spacer? At least that is what I saw.

Call D3 and ask them about the thickness of the spacers they offer. 25mm is going to make your tires stick out about 10-12mm. I would bet D3's spacers are in the 11-14mm range. They are the only ones selling them (to my knowledge) that have actual on track experience. In my opinion that is WELL worth the price they are asking.

I am all about the DIY aspect of just about everything, but there are some things that the pros know best; this being one IMHO.

How big of a spacer can use without new studs. D3 stated their spacers require new studs and you have drop the rear axle to get the studs installed. Can anybody confirm this

I rather not turn a small job into 4 hours of labor.

I am trying to push my wheels out about 10mm

I called D3 and was told you need to drop the rear end for the Sedan only. Coupe is a bolt on. Pretty labor intensive for the sedan.

Since I am heavily into this project I thought that I would post my findings;

D3 offers 2 sets of spacers; if you choose "standard" setup, they offer 11mm front and back. If you choose to move the rear wheel to the front (11mm still) and widen the front rim from 9.0 to 10.5", they have a 16mm spacer they use. I will say that in either scenario, its necessary to use the supplied, extended lug bolts. I had originally decided to go with widening the front rim, but after seeing an 11mm on the front and back, I feel it looks pretty good. The only benefit to the added hassle and expense of widening the wheel will be to help prevent wheelspin and the thick rear tire....
Crap....I just talked myself right back into the widened wheel. :yup:
