There is a post dated around September 2001 in the Tech room that discussed the use of spacers. I wouldn't mind some, but at almost £50 a pair for OMPs to increase your track by 35mm I don't think I'll be buying them anytime soon. Plus they recommend extended studs as well.
I have just bought a pair of spacers for my rear end.It is the system where the spacer first shall be mounted in 4 holes,and afterwods the alloy in 4 other holes.Check them out on http://www.spurverbreiterung.de/ .
I can see theere is a dealer in almost every eropean country.
Choose the english/american site,and then "Enter online cataloque".Now the different systems will be shown,and the one I have bought is system 4,with a thickness of 20 mm.
Now click on "cataloque",and then "wheel spacers by vehicle labels",and choose Alfa Romeo.They made them up to 50 mm!!!!
yeh i think that the wheel bearings will take a hammering and i wouldnt trust stud extenders at 70mph round a hard bend(you know what i mean)as i remember the mini ones always bent the studs and had a habit of coming loose.
Wrinx :In Denmark the "S" version always came with the grey 5 spoke Speedline's.And they are "borned" with theese 5 mm. spacers.Didnt the "S" version come automatical with Speedline's in the UK?Or other contry's?
