Well, I had two spacers and the lugs came in a 10pc pack, so I have made two of the hub-centric spacers. The extra one is available for my material costs and postage. It is 15mm thick, 71mm ID at the hub flange side and 72mm OD to fit this spare, 5x120 PCD, and includes 5 12x1.5 x 45mm extended lug bolts. Just intended to get you home with your spare, can't say how it would fare with high speed or extended use.

I have an '85 Turbo originally fitted with the Celica brakes, this spare wheel and a HiSpec brake kit. I can't say what other cars this might fit, so measure your hub and spare first if you're interested in this one.

$38 USD shipped USPS

I'm out Eddie - my hub size doesn't work with the spacer I've got 60mm hubs on mine. It's all yours :-)

Tom


Mine are 60 too but going to get rings. The bigger issue is your Stevens PCD IS 5x108 and Giugiaro Esprits are 5x120.

My header tank is supposed to be always full, the recovery tank is half empty!

Sherman, Panzer, Tiger, Abrams, Pershing, Chaffee, Challenger, Septic. So many options where can you park them all?
