Check your wheel bearings.

Went to fit 15mm spacers today (got 147 wheels and the offset was wrong, thanks DC), thought i'd take a look at the wheel bearings whilst in that area, what should have been clean grease looked more like soil,virtually dry!, cleaned it out and re packed with new, (will make a better job of it soon when got time) but it struck me that there had been no noise from the bearings, so when you have time...., just one prob with spacers, they wont fit past the grease caps, so at mo replaced the caps with plastic tops raided from the girls cosmetics drawer (temporarily, they can have them back), will have to mod the originals, its the lip on the cap that gets in the way, has anyone else had this prob with spacers?
