    Hey guys, I’m Looking for a pair of Hill Engineering WS025 25mm type 2 wheel spacers (the self-bolting ones, not the extended bolt type), needed for my 348
    5x108 fitment.would do the 15mm up front as well if you have both.
    Wondering if anyone has some in the USA.

    I can’t post in the Classifieds yet and I tacked on my wanted post reply to 3 year old existing ad but it was removed so posting here.

    Thanks!

    I have the WS025 in stock : https://www.ricambiamerica.com/ws025-2-x-25mm-spacers-type-2-fixing.html

    15mm in the front are on backorder We have the spacers, but not the +15mm bolts which are in process at Hill.

    If you want 11mm in the front, I have plenty of those (WS011 https://www.ricambiamerica.com/ws011-2-x-11mm-spacers-10-longer-bolts-type-1.html)

    Probably better to go with 11 mm as, in my case (and the case of another member), with 15 mm spacers I had tyre rub and "unfold" the wheel arch when (slowly) going over a speed bump at an angle and the steering turned to the left - the left wheel rubbed:

    I had 11's in the front and it rubbed too. The issue was the PO lowered the front 1.5 inches and I had not realized it. No wonder the car was twitchy as well. All fixed and drives great now. If it is not lowered the 11's are fine. If it is lowered expect issues.

    you had rub with 11's? I think m.stojanovic is saying his rubbed with 15's (and suggested I go with 11's)

    15-s in my case with the suspension at about normal height (the adjuster nuts at about half-way). Now I see that even 11-s can cause rubbing if the suspension is on the lower side. I haven't tried 11 mm (just removed the 15-s) but it looks like 11-s are fine if the suspension is not too low.

    Basically, there are two choices: For best high speed stability, 25 mm rear and nothing at the front; Adding spacers at the front is for the looks only and they will cause somewhat less improved high speed stability.
