This reminds me of…
This is actually a different type of wheel spacer that goes behind your hub to basically give camber to the entire assembly. I believe the hub design this type of spacer is fairly dated, which could also explain why they can’t get camber adjustment like normal people and have to resort to this.
You appear to not be seeing the fail in the design of the above camber spacers. Yes they will modify the wheel angle for that stance look but they will only work when the car is parked. If the the wheels were to begin rolling angled with those spacers they would surely provide a horrendous ride and possibly destroy the calipers as well as the suspension.
These go BEHIND the hub. Not on the wheel. Cant see how people fail to imagine that. Its mostly for cars with twist beam rear suspension ;)
And you also need to make coustom lenght screws to be able to even fit a wheel on it…
Many posts i go to and see you, you have downvotes…You aren’t saying anything bad, i don’t get it
Haters mate.Or people who can’t take an opinion.Both are usual.
I don’t get why people can’t deal with other peoples opinionIt’s the stupidest facking thing i’ve ever heard
“My opinion is better. Fck off onion!”Basically, it goes like this.
There is no right and wrong opinion, fact is not based on opinions (some exceptions though) and noone is better because of opinions
People fail 2 understand.
If you choose your wheels correctly, you shouldn’t need spacers.
I used to be against spacer because of the reasons explained in the video…Until I bought some for the boxster. Spulen 15mm with H&R bolts, I was very pleased with the result!Both in look and feeling, the increased scrub radius didn’t affect the car too much because it’s mid engine (not much weight on the front tires) and have skinny front tires.
But the only reason I put spacers is because I wanted to keep the stock wheels. If I’d gone for aftermarket wheel, I would simply bought the right offset
Also, wether you buy a rim with small ET or add spacer, the affect on the bearings is exactly the same ! I’ve heard too many times people saying that it’s not OK to put spacer but it’s OK to put ET0 wheels (for the same rim width, considering most OEM wheels have an ET of 45 that would equal a 45mm spacer !).
So spacers, yes, but think about it before, don’t forget that you’ll get what you paid for and that your bolts/nuts needs to be changed too unless you go for big studded spacers.
next episode: Curry Explained
So simply it’s better to put on wider wheels instead of spacers right?
If you maintain the same offset (ET) as stock ones then yes
No! yet again Engineering explained giving you enough information to make decisions you think are backed up but surprisingly a 5 minute video doesn’t explain the complexities of a car. Why would you go to uni for 3,4,5+ years if you could just watch some guy randomly spaff out “how things work” in videos and off you go and build a racecar.Now im not saying you have to go to uni, one thing uni has taught me is that you don’t actually need it. Its just easier, not that the course is easy but trying to gather all that information on your own will be a lot harder. Anyway back to the point…If you watch these videos remember its just an answer to a “i wonder how that works” question. Not a here is all the information you need to actually go build/make/fit/race etc.Rant over
Well ehm…It’s not possible for me to go to university…And I am a huge petrolhead but I have no mechanical knowledge. But I am.allowed to ask my question, and I don’t get why you ranted me
Im not ranting at you mate, im ranting at engineering explained.
Ok sorry then! A little misunderstanding on my side
I’ve used 25mm H&R wheel spacers on the rear axle of my Mercedes CLK for over a year now and I’ve never had a problem. Hubcentric, they bolt to the hub and then the wheels bolt to the spacer (rather than through the spacer, requiring longer bolts) They sat the standard wheels nicely in the wheel arches, they were bolted centrally so there were no wobble issues, there’s been no clearance issues, no loose bolts or bolts breaking/coming undone. From my experiences, no problems (so far! lol)
Same with mine, which look awesome enough to be worth it.
Hold up, you use 25mm spacers? Do you rub much?
Thinking of getting some. I know the dimensions will be different but I had to ask a fellow rally person :)
15mm spacers. My winter wheels don’t rub. My summer wheels rub, and I’ll need to roll the flares out even further.
I got a set of 15mm for the front of my car to make room for caliper covers. I’m wanting a set for the back.
So how do wheel spacers with stock wheels compare to aftermarket wheels with less backspacing. I’ve heard the latter is obviously better, but exactly how so? Is your 4th point in the video alleviated with aftermarket wheels?
adapters/spacers help correct offset, say you have et 25 stock and buy an aftermarket wheel with et 0 you would need adapters at 25mm to correct the offset back to stock and so it wouldnt rub on suspension components/brakes/ fit in general. in most cases the most you can deviate without adapters/spacers is 10/15 mm depending on the car
Buy wider rims with the same backspace as the original wheels. Problem solved
“When the engineers put together cost effective, safe and performance in mind “ … Yeah unless you own a VXR … The my suspension was designed on a coffee break car.
BTW you lost all the stance kids around the 3 minute mark
