    Custom Wheel Spacers: Who Can Make Me a Set???

    Gotta start on these long overdue wheel spacers for the rover... who can make me a set for less than the $400 they want from my aftermarket guys... i thought i had heard of some of the offroad shops around here making them...

    5 x 6.5" bolt pattern. want them about 1.5 in thick. i can supply a hub for measurements.

    thank ya!

    No I have not used them but had saved there URL at some time.

    I doubt you would find anyone who can custom make them for under $ 400. You would need to find 8" round Aluminum either solid or with a real thick wall just to start with, then machine OD, ID both surfaces, mill the holes and counter sinks with the right taper for the nuts.Then buy the studs and nuts plus It would take a machinist close to a day to do a one off set of 4 plus materials which is more than 1/2 your cost if you could find it.

    I know there is a guy in Ontario that setsup at the local car shows and swap meets that always has tons of spacers for cheep. I can't find his card, but maybe someone knows who he is. I have seen him at the Waterdown Swap meet a few times.

    I bought some 30mm aluminium spacers for my Disco 1 in the UK from Craddocks. They list at 168 GBP + postage. You would have to call them for a quote on postage.
