Where to buy wheel spacers in Syd/Aus

Ive searched and searched... All i can find is eBay or places like ECS and they all charge huge amounts for shipping to Aus.
Does anyone know places around here that sell hub centric wheel spacers?
Not the cheap kind at repco, etc.

Thanks.

You don't want cheap, but you want spacers?

I know what you mean, but there's no other option rather than spending thousands on a new set of wheels.
I meant cheap as in poor quality non hub centric... That can cause vibration etc.

Don't think there's much locally. How much you looking to spend and what size?

I think 15mm front and 12mm rear...
Well, see for ecs or similar it's like $100-150 a set.. But the shipping is similar. Which is the kicker.

I'm curious about what wheels you have that you need spacers front and rear that are worth going this route for? They must be pretty rare or special...

They are neither rare or special.. Just oem 19's. I just want them to sit wider.
And as I said, far from spending thousands on a new set (oem or otherwise), this seems the way to go.

On oems you could fit wider tyres and fill the space legally. 12mm neg is an inch wider tyre...

Interesting thought... Excuse my ignorance, but are you saying spacers are illegal..?
Only problem is I've just put new Super Sports on it. Maybe next set.
