wheel spacers

i recently picked up some bbs meshies from an old rx7 on ebay. i went to go get tires today and they wouldnt fit due the hub being just a little bigger than the wheel hub. however i picked up a cheap spacer at the parts store and went home and it gave it space and fit. i was going to get some spacers eventually to help these sit flush as they are the same size as stock, 15x6.5. my question is what size spacers should i get for the front and back? i believe the rear fender well is wider. 5mm front and 10mm rear or 10mm front and 15mm rear?

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that the wheel won't clear the hub because the hub is bigger than the bore on the wheel, but spacers magically fix that...

Sorry i can't be more help.

“One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that if you drive into London at 6am, half of the cars on the roads are Porsches and Astons. Whereas if you go in at ten to nine, they’re all Renaults. Simple solution, then. You want a nice car? Get up earlier and do more work.”

Universal spacers have a HUGE bore in the middle so they sit on there really loose. Your gonna want to get hubcentric spacers so they aren't on there really sloppy. If I was you I would find a machine shop and have them bore the wheel a little so it fits the stock hub...that way you can get H&R or Ichiba (sp?) spacers that are hubcentric. Also, if you go to 15mm your gonna want to replace stock lug bolts with longer ones (H&R supplies them with the spacers).

Those are ok...only problem with that style is depending on how the back of the rim is, you might have to cut the stock studs in order for the wheel to sit flush on the spacer. The 25mm shouldn't have any problem with the stock studs...just the 15mm.
