Hubcentric wheel spacer

Anyone know a good source for custom hubcentric wheel spacers?



I need a pair of 1/4" spacers and would like to get them hubcentric and wheelcentric. Hub OD measures 2.780-2.783in. Wheel ID is advertised 83mm (will measure when they get here). BP is 5x4.75in with 7/16" studs.

Thanks for any help :)

No, but if I recall when I found them years back (I likely spent days researching this) they came very highly recommended.

I would order from them if I needed a set.

I was thinking the same thing. Though it is much more suited to a CNC mill. But if you have a rotary table they could be done without too much heartache. But with all the money he has from selling the mill he can afford the bling. No I don't have time to make them on my CNC mill.

I thought about this before I sold the mill. Unfortunately I didn't have a rotary table or a boring head, and I thought it wouldn't be too hard to source. Now of course I think "hmm, for the cost of these I could have bought a used rotary table and made them myself". I'll always have a little regret over selling it, but for now I am happy to have the space.

Got a quote: $35ea plus $15 to ship - not bad for custom machined parts. Thanks for the recommendation
