Wheel spacers

I know this topic has been dicussed before however i cant find an answer to my query. Bascially i have brought a pair of 10mm spacers for my rear wheels however they are not hubcentric. If i get longer bolts will they work fine or is it a bad idea due to the wheels no longer sitting on the hub an just being held on by the bolts....

I know what you mean, not sure if it will be a problem, but i had some spacers made on my last car, i took it to a local engineering company who measured the hubs and actually made the lip your talking about so the wheel was resting on the hub properly. although i had 40mm spacers on huge 18's... with only 3 studs!

Re: Wheel spacers

ive got spacers for my wheels and mine arent hubcentric either. no matter what bolts i use i still get "wheel wobble" at 70mph because theyre not hubcentric. if i were you i would pay for the hubcentric ones as mine have been sitting on my floor for 6 months as i dont feel theyre safe to use.
