or 20mm and was looking at these two. The worry I have is that the one I buy will not work on the front tapered hub. If the spacers doesnt come to a right angle at the inner corner then they will fit loosely on a tapered hub. Another issue with a spacer on a tapered hub could be the spacer not fitting over the long hub and grease cap. Any opinions on whether these cheap spacers would work 20mm 2 mercedes
Here are three Roncallo posts mentioning the same setup that I want to do 8x16 et34 r129 wheels mounted on the front of an r107. 12mm is the minimum spacer to use with that wheel to avoid ripping tierod boots. So the max effective offset should be 22 with an 8x16 wheel. httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsr-c1...mlpost3235063 12mm spacers are the minimum in aluminum. Otherwise you must find steel which is very
Some pictures of a 560sl hub and a 280sl hub. Reno4u2 was very helpful providing not only the picture of the 560sl hub but also kin measuring the caliper to stick out past the mounting plate by 1.5 inches and the disc being about 2 38 inch from the front of the rotor. And to show that the 300sl brakes and rotors are the same as the 560sl here is RenatoMBs hub I asked Reno4u2 to measure some distances
The age old question of Tapered Hub spacers. Most vendors on fleabay have never even owned a mercedes benz so how do they make claims that it might or might not fit For those that do say it does not fit the tapered hub because the most common centric hub spacers do not work on tapered hubs and they had to take enough of them back from customers that complained. I have not personally tried out the
Verification that ET11 is correct for 16x8 wheels on a 107 16 AMG PENTA mercedes benz ALLOY WHEELS SL SEC 126 - eBay (item 280646826698 end time Apr-19-11 014838 PDT) Looks like a nice set eh
I thought there was more room in the back for wider wheels but I seem to recall the more room to grow in than out. So it sounds like youve either got staggered wheels or a very low ET. spacers will reduce your ET which doesnt sound like a good thing if its already low. I bet you will stand a good chance of needing to roll your fenders if you add the spacers. spacers for the MB need to be concentric
Bandit What did you end up doing with this spacer situation As Im sure you know by the above threads the cylinder on the tapered hub is only about 10mm deep. So a spacer any wider than that will give the wheel nothing to center. So youd have to develop some type of sleeve which might not work perfectly to center the wheel. See this thread on spacers for tapered hubs httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsr-c1...ered-hubs.html
No they fit fine without the spacers. The bearing cap will not allow a center cap unless you space them about 10mm. Im looking at the hubcentric spacers which have the centering sleeve for the wheel machined into the outside of the spacer. Im currently running the car without the spacers just to see if it is exacerbating the problem. Seems to help a little bit but I still have a shimmy so I may be
Many states that have a vehicle inspection requirement do not allow spacers. I know Virgina is one the vehicle will fail state inspection with spacers. Ken

wheels that are known to fit well on the front if a 560sl - lorinser LO 8x16 et22 - AMG aero1 one piece 8x17 et11 - AMG road wheels (penta style) made by ronal in 8x16 et11 - bbs rs133 8x16 et21 Crap I know there are more but I cant remember right now. spacers are fine if you know what you are doing. Start with a high offset wheel and decrease the offset with the spacer. Use the correct mercedes

I will be using them eventually on my 450SL as I believe these cars benefit from a wider wheel base. I intend to push them out as far as I can without having
I personally feel that there are fewer things to go wrong with a simple setup that is not like the adapter setup which is capable of changing the pcd with new studs sticking out of the spacers. They also need to be thicker than standard spacers to allow for enough aluminum to be strong enough to (a) bolt the spacer on the hub with short-head (weak) lug bolts onto the hub and (b) hold the stud into
I am working on the drivers side. The original drivers side spacer is 2.9mm. By the way the passenger side spacer is 3.1mm. With the new shaft and the original spacer the shaft doesnt go into the spider gear far enough to put the C clip in. The spacer is too thick. I would need a thinner spacer just to get the C clip in. I tried this I put the new axle in with no spacer. Put the shaft in all the way
thinking about this Im starting out with a stub that is too short by .66 to match the old one. If I took the original spacer size of 2.9 and reduced it by what the new shaft is short Id come up with 2.3. The thinest spacer is 2.6 it might just work but .3mm is a lot when your looking at this end play adjustment. Im getting that sick feeling that says this aint gonna work Steve

Youll need spacers that are 25mm - 30mm thick. Obviously youll also need some longer wheel studs unless you get hubcentric spacers. If you get hubcentric ones ensure that they have M12 x 1.5 thread studs to attach to your hub. Ensure the stud pattern is 5 x 112.
Quote Originally Posted by ajtcsx I think thats who I bought mine from. M-B spacers wont have studs on them. Theyll have holes for the mounting bolts to go through. Do not buy anything but hub centric. Even then youll have to be very carefull when mounting to make sure everything is carefully centered otherwise you have an out of balance condition. Make sure you buy new bolts with the matching increased
[QUOTEFotografa3668334]Youll need spacers that are 25mm - 30mm thick. It might have been this place. These show up to 20mm. I needed more. If it was this place I called them and they were able to get thicker ones. Lug Nuts Wheel Adapters spacers Lug Bolts
I have bought off of Ebay 15mm hub centric adapterspacer but my 73 450 SLC hubs are slightly larger than the normal 66.5mm. The measurements for all the dimensions were excellent. The center was cut at 67.2 mm. I am in the process of having custom hub centric adapterspacer machined by another ebayer. If you need anything less than 10 mm the universal style spacer without the hub centric could work.
After reading about the AMG spacer kit that was available on the 190 Rev forum I did the mod on my w201 to get a bit more clearance between the tyres and the guard. With the Cosworth bodykit fitted the wheel rubs on corners at the bottom of the front guard (back of the bumper) and once fitted moved the guard about 10mm out only allowing slight rubbing on only the most extreme corners at high speed.
As far as I know to retrofit the later 560SL wheels doesnt require spacers.

Im currently using these wheels with 20mm spacers without rolled fenders and 22555 16 tires and they hit on both sides.
I found the part number. They are 16x8 with a ET 34. I will order the 20mm spacers from HR (part number 40556653) They have a 25 mm one. But they may be just a little to big. Did you use spacers for the rear tires I guess I going to have to live with the tires touching alittle
heres the deal you have to grind down the hub. the metal has deteriorated oxidized rusted corroded up etc. so it is too big for the spacer to slide over. The spacer is made to fit a new hub. not a used hub. So youll have to get something like a dye grinder with a good wire wheel and go all around it till its ultra shined and completely clean. It wont be good enough to shine it up by eye. youll have
