Bruce...
 
Are you still searching for spacers?

BruceH 06-07-2013 09:29 PM

Nope, just put some 20mms on today!

Sweet.
I found some magnesium super lightweights spacers but if your sorted that's great.
I wanted rss but I couldn't get them shipped for a price that worked.

GSR are shipping me the LSUDP for a price that smashes any thing I can get over here...nuts eh! But can't get the spacers to come in at the right price.

Anyways I found some super lightweight ones now, and didn't know if you needed a bump.

Glad you are sorted. 20mm!!!!! Post pics :cheers:

Thanks for thinking of me! I got mine from Wheel Dynamics. Spoke to Eli, good guy. The fit is absolutely perfect. I am very happy with them.

Looks right BRUCEH! Are those wheels Porsche 2-piece? Are the spacers on the FR also and if so, can you feel any difference when driving? What is the width/offset of the spaced wheels? Is it getting hot in Texas yet ( by my def- 85 or more):p

BruceH 06-08-2013 12:26 PM

Yes, they are the BBS Sport Classic II's which are a two piece. They are 10" wide with a 65 offset. The 20mm spacer takes them to 45 which makes them just right IMO. The ride is excellent! Very happy with the way they turned out. I am thinking about 7 or 15 mm spacers for the front but I haven't decided yet. It was over 85 a looooong time ago, upper 90's coming this week.

Hey Bruce, no worries.

Looks perfect. Top job.

woodsman 06-09-2013 01:34 PM

I THOUGHT THE FR WERE ALREADY 'SPACED'. I was wondering if they felt different. Anyway, stay cool!

BruceH 06-09-2013 03:06 PM

Nope. Only the rears are spaced. Handling is no different.

Raider 06-09-2013 05:26 PM

You got your wheels finally! They look great. Of course I'm a bit biased. Which tires did you get?
And yes they are more work to keep clean. But, so what, they are worth it.

BruceH 06-09-2013 06:41 PM

Thanks Raider, yes they are well worth it! I got the Michelin Pilot Super Sports and love them. Quiet, smooth and lots of grip!
