Wheel Spacers move your wheels and tires outwards so they are more flush with the fender, instantly giving your vehicle the perfect stance! High end sports car manufacturers use every millimeter of fender space available in their design for the best looks and highest performance and so should you. With the correct size wheel spacer, you can fill the gap in your fenders and GO WIDE!
These Wheel Spacers feature a "perfect fit" hub centric design that makes the spacer function as a precise extension of the axle hub, there by guaranteeing precision wheel fitment.
PCD means what?
PCD stands for pitch circle diameter and is the diameter of a circle drawn through the centre of your wheel's bolt holes. P.C.D. is measured in millimeters and also indicate the number of studs or bolts the wheel will have. Volkswagen Alloy Wheels are usually either 4x100: i.e. 4 bolt holes drilled through the centre of an imaginary 100mm circle, or 5x100: for VR6s, GTis and MK4s.
Center Bore means what?
The center bore of an alloy wheel is the size of the hole at the back of the wheel which the hub fits into. To help the wheels to seat properly this hole needs to be an exact match to the size of the hub. Most modern wheels are what's called hub-centric. This means that the hub which protrudes from your car, and mates with the equivalent sized hole at the back of your wheel, is load bearing. All that the studs or bolts do is holding the wheel onto the hub. If you have lug-centric wheels, the state of your studs or bolts is obviously more important - be sure to replace these from time to time and always 3/4 tighten the wheels off the car to make sure they're centered.
Offset means what?
Offset is normally stamped or engraved into the wheel and is measured in millimeters of ET. ET is the short form of the German word Einpresstiefe which translates as insertion depth. Offset is the distance between the hub mounting face at the back of the wheel and the wheel's centerline.
• Negative Offset wheels have their mounting face toward the rear of the wheel - powerful rear-wheel drive cars often have wheels with negative offset.
• Zero Offset wheels have their mounting face even with the centerline of the wheel and are by definition ET0.
• Positive Offset wheels have their mounting face toward the front face of the wheel. Front wheel drive vehicles usually have positive ET wheels. Eighties & Nineties Volkswagen wheels are generally ET38.
