Wheel spacers

Hi, I am looking to buy a set of spacers for my front wheels which currently have custom made spacers.

Details of the wheels are below:

17" Style 44 wheels - 225,45 tyres, BREMBO calipers
The car is an E46, 320d, 2002

Can anyone recommend from where i can get a decent set of spacers?
Should I go the ebay way? What should I look out for?

I don't really want to get them custom made..

Thank you..

Go with the H&R TRACK+ Spacers, they are forged alloy and we offer them with longer bolts if you need the complete set.

H&R, Rouge Eng., Macht Schnell are a few reputable spacers you may want to look into.

We offer the entire H&R wheel spacer line as well as the ECS Tuning Straight Flush lineup. You can find all of your options available below...

Click HERE to order or for more information.


You will also find all matching lug bolts which will be needed for most spacers due to the increased width.

Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe

I got H&R and Velocity Motorcars (not to be confused with VMR) and the H&R are better.
What size are you thinking about getting?

18mm Spacers

I have a pair of used 18mm spacers that come with the longer bolts. It looks like the spacers are made by H&R, the stampings on the back of it are "BMW18" and "TR109." They are used, and there are some "dents" on the inside of them. I am looking to get $80 shipped anywhere in the US for these. Let me know!

Thanks all for your replies.. this morning I should be going to a local garage to see a pair of spacers.. apparently they've got some sort of a flange.

@zkiefer - if these don't work out and there are problems, I'll contact you re. your pair of H&R

Im running a full set of Macht Schnell spacers! After reading up on them and the competition, they are the best on the market!
