Hi guys, I just want to ask if the addition of 10mm spacers will cause any uncomfortable vibrations when driving at high speeds.

I've been told that spacers tend to cause vibrations between 100km/h to 125km/h... am pretty interested in quality spacers myself.

It's possible if the spacers are not hubcentric. Invest in some quality spacers and you'll be fine.

So I'm assuming that with the H&Rs spacers, there won't be any vibrations?

+1 that is why you always want to invest in good quality, hubcentric spacers. I used to own Dinan spacers. Never had that vibration problem. They were expensive, but great product.

As long as you are going with a hubcentric spacer (ie: 10mm and wider) you should be fine.

We're dropping the H&R spacers from the lineup and recommending the Macht Schnell Competition Wheel Spacer kits instead:





Competition Wheel Spacer kit Features:
- Machined from 6061-T6 aerospace aluminum
- Chamfered edges allows installation & removal quick and easy
- Black anodized finish for additional strength and corrosion/wear resistance
- Improve handling by reducing body roll with a wider wheel base
- Included dacromet corrosion-resistant wheel fasteners

Another thing about the MS kits is that they come with the necessary extended wheel lugs, unlike the H&Rs.

MS Competition Spacer Kits can be found on our site here:

MS Competition Wheel Spacer Kits (various sizes)

Let me know if you have any further questions.

I have 15mm H&R spacers all around on my M3 with stock 18" wheels with H&R springs and the ride quality and vibrations absolutely suck with the spacers... but at least it looks good? I might sell them and try those EAS ones.

So, are the H&R not hubcentric spacers? Is this the primary reason you dropped them?

Thanks.

schnell325, are you in any way related to MachtSchnell?

I also want to know the reason for dropping H&R spacers. I've read a few vibration issues with them.

You have mail

Hope you can help me... Are you running 15mm (Front) and 10mm (Rear)?
