where to get spacers and bolts?

I see them on ebay but I'm wondering if there's a more reliable source?

I need 15mm's, I'm guessing I'll get the sandwitch style (maybe h&r's) with longer bolts? Where would you guys reccomend?

Ps, 12's are absolutly needed for my setup, I'd like to go as agressive as 15mm and maybe I could go as far as 17mm if an amazing deal is out there. Used is okay too if anyone was thinking of selling theirs!

Thanks in advance, 986 forums has hooked me up already

oh, and...

The car:


The wheels: (18x10, et58)


help me put two and two together... or, one and four together lol

A Google search for the least expensive H&R spacers will quickly lead you to Option Imports. My experience with them was extremely negative and suggest buying from someone else is well worth the extra dollars.

I did not check to see if they are advertising the fact that they sell them on the website yet, but they do offer and ship them at about the same cost as Option.

I also did not have the best experience with them either (Option)

those are the same wheels i had on my 97 and you will need 15 mm spacers for em to fit without hitting the caliper... i ordered mine from the company that sells em in san diego... cost was about $100 which included the bolts... no need for spacers in the front.... i even had the same color car.. i'm gonna look for pictures..

can you tell me the company?

I tested them last night, they're clear of the caliper, they hit the shock on the very top of the inside of the tire..

i will clear w 12 but I want 15... I'd love to see pics though

Thanks for the input so far


I'll call tire rack tomorrow, they've always been very good!

I bought my spacers and extended bolts from Allsprings.

They have the best prices and delivery fast.

http://www.allsprings.com/

15MM spacers - $123.45 a pair

$6.95 per extended bold, need 10 of them.
