Acute Performance | Turner Motorsports Spacers

INVENTORY STATUS
2 set of 12.5mm
1 set of 15mm

In stock, ready to ship from Los Angeles w/ matching black lug nuts.


Hi Everyone,

Finally found a reasonably priced spacer company that I'm happy with. The Turner Motorsports spacers are made in the USA and have the following features:

1. Spacers need to be removed from time to time, and it's not uncommon for them to become stuck to the hub of the car. Nowhere is this more common than the four seasons of New England (where we are located), where rust makes removing anything a nightmare. Most companies tell you to use a hammer and chisel to beat the spacer off. All this does is distort the spacer which, in turn, may lead to a vibration. This latest spacer design incorporates pockets around the entire circumference of the spacer. These pockets allow you to easily pop the spacer off with a flat blade screwdriver without damaging it.

2. We start with very strong and lightweight high-grade aluminum with a strong resistance to corrosion. We go the extra step and have our spacers coated with a military-spec hard-coat for extreme corrosion prevention and with a dark gray color to blend in with your wheel and brake package for best appearance.

3. All Turner Spacers are CNC machined to very tight machining tolerances to save weight while not affecting strength. Our spacers are engineered and manufactured to preserve ride quality, last a long time, and enhance your BMW's handling and looks.

4. We laser engrave each wheel spacer with it's size for fast identification.

5. The runout tolerance for each spacer is is 0.0003".

Pricing
10mm* - $85/pair
12.5mm - $85/pair
15mm - $85/pair
20mm - $95/pair

Options
10 Extended Lug Nuts - $29 (Black or Silver)

Shipping - $12 CONUS

All orders can be placed by sending PayPal to michael@acuteperformance.com or giving me a call at 626.722.8881.





If there are any questions let me know.

*A note about 10mm spacers: Any 10mm spacer is considered a custom fitment. The stock hubcentric lip on BMWs can stick out by as much as 11mm. This leaves a gap between the spacer and the hub which seriously compromises safety. We recommend using a larger spacer (12mm and larger do not have this issue) or check that the lip sticks out less than 10mm.

How does the 5mm spacer fit? Is it just a straight non hubcentric?

What is the TIR runout tolerance on the faces?

I don't recommend anything lower than 12.5mm. The stock hubcentric lip on BMWs can stick out by as much as 11mm so running 10mm could cause a gap between the hub and spacer leading to vibration issues.

5mm just won't work, I should just remove it completely since it might cause confusion. Thanks.

As for the TIR runout tolerance, let me get back to you on that. Waiting to hear back from the manufacturer.

Great questions!

Ever have spacers get stuck to your hub even after using anti-seize? The TMS spacers have a slot where you can use a screw driver and easily pop them off. No more mallet, no more hammer, no more accidentally damaging your rotors/hub.

Best of all? Less expensive than competitors and Made in the USA.

Ideally, I'd be looking at 12mm spacers(on all 4 corners) since my studs length(75mm) only recommend up to 12mm. However, I think the extra .5mm would not be an issue, unless you guys feel otherwise?
