23mm spacers

Porsche Boxster 23mm Wheel Spacers | eBay

Does anyone have any experience with these? They come with the extended bolts and claim to be USA made. Looking at buying a set of 18" twists that have the 65 rear offset so I know I will need spacers.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks JD. I was just curious about the build quality since they are almost half the price of the H&Rs when you include the bolts.

They look to be well made. Keep in mind, that one is paying for the name when it comes to brands like H&R. Good deals can often be found in different places and with other brands . Just make sure that you're given the correct length lug bolts; especially for the rears .

If you keep your eyes open, you can find 25mm 944 spacers on ebay. I got a pair for $16. Still had to get new studs but it was all a lot less on a whole.

Bought a set of 18" twists that have the 65 offset on the rears for $350. I think the fronts will be fine, so now the hunt for the 23mm spacers begins along with a set of tires. The PO ran the wheels on his Vanagon so the front tires have bad inner wear (and the one of the rear tires is a mismatch).

The next question after the spacers is what's the best tire sizes for the fronts and rears.
