Wheel Spacers for the RL here is the deal

Hey guys

I purchased some Diamond cut 19" and the RL calipers where to big so the challange begins.

I went thru hundreds of wheels studs and here is what i found that works.

5x120 spacers 10mm
m14x1.5 x 55mm studs

So guys I found a supplier in canada that can get these studs for a better price and was about week turn around.



I removed the bearing assembly for a few reasons. Very simple

New studs pressed into the hub.

The back of the rotor bolt holes have to be coned slightly .

Finaly all back together. I emailed the company who made the spacers so the next set are a little bit wider.


I will have the back done tonight.[/

Bumping this since I need this

Why is it so difficult to find 10mm spacers? I don't like Akata either

so can i use the ebay adapters and press the studs out of them and use them as spacers instead?

the motorsports-tech custom spacers are like 180 plus shipping and bunch of other nickel and diming...

the ebay adapters are 120 shipped for all 4 hub centric 15mm adapters. is there a reason i shouldnt use those instead?

and JDMCRX can you post where you found cheaper studs please?

Hey guys the studs are only available thru me unless you find the supplier ! You can only go 10mm spacer unless you go with extended nuts you may get 2-4mm extra. I'm doing 12mm in the rear this summer and the Acura nuts off the TL will work safety .

Im working on my house right now and have 11 emails from
people about the studs !

The studs are around $200-220us depends on the us and Japan dollar !

if you are willing to spend the money to purchase them thru me then I can help you ! Other wise my buddy won't help ! Has to be thru me myself only

Why are extended wheels studs so hard to come by? I need ones that are 65mm in length. The only ones that I've found to fit are the KYO-EI ones but they only make them 10mm longer than OEM. I need to run 20mm spacers to clear the calipers and things are looking grim...
