a spacer is a spacer... just make sure they are hub-centric
then dont let the final offset exceed +27 if you're lowered

Adaptec Speedware man. Their customer service is fantastic, and their rates are decent. Fantastic quality and they stand by them, you'll definitely be in good hands.

There was a weird time between fifteen52 and adapted, orders not shipped and such, but yes I've run adapted stuff. High quality. They can cut you custom size spacers for a reasonable price, then head back to all springs (turner motorsports) for extended lugs


Edit: adapted is my iPad auto correcting adaptec

I had my spacers made to order, can't remember the company. Took wheel and hub measurements and I had them 2 days later. I needed them to give me more caliper clearance, I was surprised how close the 18's are to the calipers. Pushed them out 3-5 mm

I've used H&R Trak+ spaces (20 mm) with good results. They're TUV certified.

Heard good things about Adaptec...

no experience with this company yet... but they will make the spacers to order, in 1 mm increments.
