I'm in the process of purchasing some wheel spacers. I know the correct size for the extended bolts. I have noticed on the H&R spacers it says the original cone washers must be reused. I pulled off an original bolt to look at these cone washers. The bolt has a ridge that prevents the cone washers from coming off. How do you get these off to reuse them? Grind the ridge down?

Or, if I purchase the extended bolts, will they already have the cone washers? I'm having a hard time finding the extended bolts. I need 52mm and 60mm. Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Some of mine were a bit stubborn when I tried to remove and transfer them to some longer bolts, but I managed to do so by twisting a flat-blade screwedriver in the space between the washer and the bolt head (one or two also required gripping the washer with a pair of pliers and tapping the bottom of the bolt). good luck

Any suggestions on width size? I'm planning on 7mm in the front, and 14mm in the rear. Does it really look bad going larger than that in the rear?

Don't even bother with 7mm -- you won't notice the difference. Go with 15mm front from H&R. I did this on my 17" stock wheels and the difference is noticeable. I left the rear wheels as is.

Oggie -

Thanks for that information I was wondering just how the 7mm would look fearing that the 14mm would be too wide. However you feel that the 7mm will go un noticed. I am running the P-Zero Turbo Twist wheels and am concerned about wheel rub.

I have the 14mm on the rear and will be mounting the 144mm on the front this weekend for a look.

Thanks, 99C2
