View Full Version : spacers = longer wheel bolts?

Quick, probably dumb, question! :oops:

If I get 7mm spacers for when I put my 172 OZs on, do I need 7mm longer wheel bolts?

And, if so, 7mm longer than what standard length?! lol

buy hubcentric spacers not standard ones as at 7mm the wheel will be solely relying on the bolts for location. think the smallest might be 10mm but they are much safer.

as a rule you need at least 6 full turns of a wheel bolt, preferably more

Cool, okey dokey.

I'll have to take a standard bolt to the shop and see what I can get lol

Can the bolts be too long and catch on something if they haven't got a 100% suitable size?

Will look for hubcentric though :)
