Wait, you're using an 8mm spacer with a 30mm adapter?

i mean - i guess you could. Where did you put the spacer? between the hub and the adapter or the adapter and the wheel?

I wouldn't do it - but I'm trying to think if it would matter if it was on the wheel side of the adapter? especially if everything is hub centric (are 8mm spacers hub centric or do you need more?)

bolting straight through multiple adapters/spacers to the hub would be dumb.

If he’s running 30mm adaptors, then they are bolt on style so he’s just likely running a 8mm spacer on that setup which is almost nothing.

I’ve run larger spacers then that.

Doesn’t make it safe or advisable, but hey who needs safety as long as the car looks good.

Aren’t you selling 15 year old tires as “new” in the classifieds?

Yeah, as spares, no reason to worry there.

Stage 3 Turbo Concepts turbo + manifold + injectors + downpipe + other crap.

Still not done as you can see from the all-around MAF bracket.  Ordered up a tight radius 180 so I can mount the filter better and have some tubing pre-maf.

Works great as is, probably more of an aesthetic upgrade.
