Well I was hating the idea on have to buy another set of wheels for autocross, already own 6 sets of wheels. So I turned and milled me some spacers so my current autocross setup would work on my new car with the SVT brake conversion. There is about a gap to fit 2 credit cards between the wheel and caliper. Here is 2 pictures of what I made up. Yes I forgot to take a picture of the wheels on the car at my autocross event yesterday.

What size are the 15's that you run?? Oh, and things to be prepared for....
1) Pics of 15's on car with spacer/adapter....
2) Can you make more and if yes, at what cost....
3) If you can't make more than install a door sized metal detector at every opening of your place... LOL

They look really really good BTW....nice job.

I run a 15x6.5 with 42 offset. Hopefully get wider 15s for next season.

Might be able to get a couple pictures up tonight with the 15s on.

I have already thought about making more and selling them just trying to figure out a price. They way I made these is that the spacer centers on the hub and then the wheel centers on the spacer. I am also running longer studs but I might buy some to sell with the spacers if I do end up making sets for sale. Stock studs will not work at all.

Yeah, I was thinking stock studs would be wayyyy too short. I really wish I had not just bought 17" track wheels not too long ago....but maybe I can sell'em... hmmmmmm

will keep an eye on this if you do decide to make'em. I wish I had the ability/facilities to fabricate such things. Excellent job!

I most likely will make a few sets.

Didn't get around to taking pictures with the wheels on the car. Will do that tomorrow.

Not completely sure on the length. I never installed the studs on the car. I could check tomorrow for you.
