Anybody know any good, cheap wheel spacer options for the 2012 fiesta? Can't find any hubcentric ones. And I'm sure I need that lol.

But I don't believe those are hub centric with out center bore.

The wheels have pretty much stock back spacing and offset. So yea. I want them to be out a little further.

You are aware that any thing over 5-6mm will require longer studs.
Spacers will lower the wheel rate(springs) and affect braking and steering.

Yea I'm aware of that. Not aware that it would affect the brakes.

Did you read the footnotes?
"These are Hub-centric flat disc type spacers which require the factory hub to center the wheels. Please measure to verify."
"Vehicle System Widening Per Side Part Num. Maximum Hub Height
FORD DRS / 10 20346331 11.00mm"

I read somewhere else that the center bore was a different diameter than the one provided by those spacers.

So the spacer would have to be less than 11mm as noted.

I'm just using generic 3mm spacers in the front to clear the calipers and I swapped in ARP wheel studs. Doesn't seem like such a crutch to run wheels you can't really buy anymore?

Sorry. What do you mean by this?

It was more in reference to the guy who called spacers a crutch.

If you mean my situation, my Koseis were touching the brake calipers so I used the smallest spacer I could to make them clear. Since I didn't feel comfortable doing this with the stock studs, I swapped out for ARP units.

A lot of people say it's a crutch and others say it's not an issue. I feel like it's one of those things where everyone wants to fight over it. For me, I just want my wheels to be flush with the fender and can't find any wheels with a decent offset so I will need to turn to spacers.

I use a 1/8" spacer on the rear of my Mustang to gain wheel/tire clearance to the inner fender when using 9" wide wheels. The spacer is thin enough to allow the hub to still engage the wheel. I also run 4" long ARP studs, which gives me the option for spacer changes if I run 275 wide tires or larger.

Could you shoot me a link to those studs?
