    Default Which bolt-on-type spacers do you prefer?

    Wondering what everyone on here prefers for bolt-on-type wheel spacers (spacers with a set of studs already in them); especially for larger/ heavier VIP-style 3 piece wheels.

    In no particular order:

    1. Project Kics
    2. Ichiba
    3. H&R
    4. Powered By Max
    5. Adaptec
    6. Other (please specify)
    well...I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong

    No one uses spacers to clear their BBK or fit the "o-type" Work wheel faces? or is it just too emabrassing to admit to using spacers?
    ... alright, fair enough :]

    i have ichiba spacers...no real difference to my eBay spacers...only thing is that the ichiba spacers are a 1 piece and the eBay ones are 2 pieces(the spacer itself and a hubcentric ring)...personally I would just get the ebay ones to save on money...

    Yeah...I used R Disc to clear my big brake kit up front to avoid spacers/adapters and used standard for the rear. Yup...even some of us Hyundai guys know what we're doing

    I went with a custom pair of 22mm bolt-ons from US Wheel Adapters and am quite happy with them. The turn around was only a few weeks and they're hub centric on both sides (64.1 to 75), and the studs and supplied lugs were in my less-than-common thread pitch. No shakes/wobbles at all, and they're holding up great on my 4000+lb car. I'm no expert, but I was definitely impressed with the quality, and customer support was great.

    I am also curious on what kind of spacers people run. It sounds like it would be a hit or miss if I go with the Ichiba's. Perrin has a sale on their spacers which are made by H&R, however the shipping costs more than the actual spacer for me to ship to Canada...

    i run ichiba spacers and some spacers from the ebay seller "optionselect". the nuts that come with the ichibas are way too soft and i get a little vibration. the ebay spacers seem better made than the ichibas and haven't had a problem so far.

    I ran Ichiba version 1's a few years back, and with my new wheel setup that i'm going to be running I have some Ichiba version 2's to pair with them.

    never had issues with Ichiba's... their studs are great quality. I've had Ebay spacers strip studs and such. I would recommend a quality spacer if you are planning to remove the wheels regularly or abuse your car a bit.
