Wheel spacers.

Recommended Posts

I thought I would share my experience of using wheel spacers 20mm front and rear. There 5 x 108 x 20mm hubcentric FORD spacers ( Same as Jaguars but don't carry the premium price of anything Jaguar related) So far after 9000 miles no adverse effects except for extra dirt splashing up the sides. (Excuse the dirt in the photo as it hasn't had its monthly detailing through the local car wash) The camber on the front was left as supplied by Jaguar slightly positive, Expect after fitting the spaces it's neutral as both front and rear tires have worn evenly across the tread with the usual center wear to the rears.(Before the outside of the fronts were wearing quicker) I haven't experienced any change in the steering feel or tramlining, Just slightly more patter over uneven surfaces.

Hi Old_Growler,

Thanks the write up on your experience of fitting 20mm Ford wheel spacers to your Sportbrake. I am interested in adding some additional track width to my Sportbrake. My experience with previous cars (Mercs) has proven that the spacers add handling improvements as well as having (in my opinion) a positive impact on the visual appearance by providing a more aggressive stance. 

Having read this, I have just placed an order for a pair of Ford specific 5x108 63.4mm hubcentric spacers from ebay. Assuming that these fit, I will order another pair, however, until I found your summary I have been unable to clarify whether it was worth taking the risk of ordering these. As you correctly mention, The Ford specific parts are around half the price of any similar specific Jaguar spacers that I have been able to find.     

I hope to report back with positive news in the next few days....

Kind regards,

 

RoJo
