Wheel Spacers

6 posts in this topic

Hi All,

My diff is offset in my ol girl and and one wheel pokes out about 5 mm more than the other so I was thinking about putting a 5 mm spacer on that side to make it look the same,

Would this be safe still?  Any info would be appreciated. Cheerin

A common issue with older Fords.  Most boys in blue frown on the thin plate style, multi stud spacers, but you can buy a better quality set, (dearer of course) that actually bolt to your existing hub, and have 5 studs mounted on the actual plate. Unsure of the sizes, though.  Maybe fit a 235 on the left and a 245 on the right..:blink:

i wouldn't run different size tyres, no good for the diff for starters..

what car is it? if it's got stuffed bushes it might sit that way

I heard you can run a 17" wheel on the drivers side and a 16" on the passenger side to compensate for the weight of the driver so the car sits level. Also better for turning left at speed.
