H&R vs Porsche wheel spacer question
 
Hi Folks,

Does anybody know if there is really any difference in quality between H&R and
Porsche wheel spacers (perhaps H&R is even the OEM provider to Porsche?)?

A 17mm Porsche wheel spacer set can be purchased at Suncoast Porsche Motorsport for $225 and the equivalent H&R set (but in 15 mm or 18mm) can be acquired for 1/2 the price. The H&R spacers are lightweight, strong and TUV approved, so one would be inclined to think they are top quality.

However, the only downside to the H&Rs, is that they might not make wheel locks for the 15 or 18 mm wheel spacer sizes, whereas Porsche does for the 17 mm - I need to check into this.

Any comments or recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Humberto-

I have the H&R's on mine in 18mm. No wheel locks on rear, but I'm not worried about that as it's always garaged or in my control.

I bought them because of their weight and their good name. They have been great on my car. ET65 rear wheels and the 18's bump it out to 47 correct offset.

Good luck,

Thanks, Jeff.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the spacers and for what price? (including the longer bolts).

Thanks again.

Regards,

got them from automotion catalog ($99) and bolts I think are $5 each. At the time they shipped for free.
