The issues you will get is chronic road rash from the additional debris thrown up because of the wheels being further out.

Have a search on here about Alfa red paint, whilst the red is the worse affected by the seems of it most of the other colours have been affected by road rash

Zender 156 V6

I would avoid buying 10mm hubcentric spacers as there are issues fitting these to 156/GTV etc and I would assume Mito would be the same, the spacer doesnt really have enough thickness to produce to a flat flange and there are slight fitment issues on the rear hub and some wheels.

12mm would be a better choice but must be hubcentric and longer bolts. Eibach are good quality but probably not worth the extra and normally dont include longer bolts.

If you have issues with road rash then you could easily have clear vinyl fitted to those areas........

Whether its actually worthwhile fitting spacers?.............

Anyone know where to get some various size hubcentric spacers for the Mito?

i was thinking small ones on the front and max of 15mm on the rear.

I had some 15mm on a MK7 Fiesta ZS and the difference in looks was so much better plus the handling was more fun.

Thanks

towney, I have spacers, been on now for over a year no probs, at all, other than slight rubbing on front when on full lock.
Had mine i.e 15mm. Ali. spacers, cone wheel bolts, from Alfa Romeo Community: alfisti.net worth a look.
I found them very helpfull, good delivery etc. maybe not the cheapest, but the cheapest is not the best.

The car looks far better, etc. etc.

Hi

how have the spacers set up been? any stoone chips all down the side? or you been ok?

I think i had PMd you befor about this but deleted the msg as ran out of space and you have to as just tried but your all full.

I have secured a deal with DCperformnace for the shocks and springs to be delivered for less than other places as done a small deal so great service up to know.

so now its the spacers, i know of the following:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180787641015

or DC performance also do them at £93 for 2

Alfa Romeo MiTo Eibach 15mm Spacers S90-2-15-020 Only £93.00

but these are only a set of 2, so for 4 its gonna be just under £200 which seems a lot to me, plus i need to get new bolts for these.

where do i get these, you got links to the ones you have? that way know there right.

all i can see is on the ebay ones they states "Bolt Thread: M12x1,25"

cheers for your help
Andy

im talking with DCperformance about what is required, hopeing they can supply the H&R spacers, new longer nuts and set of thatcham type locking wheel nuts.

would just getting the rear spacers be ok? or is having all 4 corners 15mm wider safer?
