Anyone? Spacers on the 17's?
 
I have the stock 17's powder-coated with Discoverer AT/3 and was wondering if anyone has a similar setup with 1.5 spacers. I searched around but couldn't find anyone running this on the 17's. I saw a 4 set on Ebay for $125 and was ready to jump on it.

Well I'll answer my own question in case someone is looking for this answer in the future.

Lennie from Motorsports got back to me and they fit perfectly. I ordered the 1.5. He even took $15 off the website price.

Thanks.

I hate to be the one to tell you this but don't run those spacers. If you need to run spacers you want to buy a quality spacer like spidertrax. You don't want to run cheap eBay spacers. Those are just asking for trouble.

Spidertrax doesn't make them for a WK2, there is another out fit on here people are using though. Defiantly don't use cheepo E bay junk for your own sake and others.

I didn't buy the Ebay ones, I bought the ones from Motorsports (Bora) that most people on the forum are running. Ebay guy got back to me and I could tell he had no idea what he was talking about.

Sounds like a nice setup. Post some pics when you get a chance.

Don't confuse the BORA spacers from Motorsport-tech with Ebay or other generics. These are A+ quality.

Got my 1.5 Bora spacers installed and love them. Not sure if a placebo effect but I noticed a better ride/stability as well. No vibrations at high speeds at all. The last one was a pain in the a$$ to get the tire in but with a little hammering it's all good now.
