I got a set of H&R TRAK+ 5mm wheel spacers to go along with my new tires, which I am getting on Wednesday. Hopefully rubbing will go away somewhat so I can get my turning circle down to stock 43 feet from like 60 feet <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>This is probably really obvious once you've gotten the wheels off, but since I won't be doing the install (the tire shop will)... which way do the spacers go? It's got a beveled edge around the centre hole. Does the bevel face the brakes (inwards) or the wheels (outwards)?<p>Thanks!

Re: Noob wheel spacer question (evilspoons)

Bevel (lip) faces OUT/facing you. That lip fits inside the center of your alloy wheel. Its called "hub centric" because of this lip. Did you get the right diameter of this "lip" for our cars; meaning the alloy wheels for the R cars?

Re: Noob wheel spacer question (Short Circuit)

Ok, that's all I needed to know. Wheel terminology still confuses me; I haven't dealt with them enough to have all the terms sink in (ask me about something computer part related though, lol.)<p>I bought them from ViVA Performance on their "R" section and they say Volvo on the sticker, so I hope they're the right ones, haha. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>(H&R Trak+ #1035650)
