Need a 5mm spacer - URGENT - please read

I dropped my car off at EU Autowerkes today to get my new camber plates on(replacing moton with the KW competition plates). For this, I require new springs + helper springs.. at the end of the day, we found out that the strut is actually touching my wheel now because of the longer/slightly bigger springs. One of my remedies is to use a 5mm spacer, which I must locate immediately. I' haven't got a chance to call around as most places are closed.

Hopefully, someone might have a set laying around I could buy or temporarily borrow till I can find a set for myself.

Thanks!

I have 10mm spacers you can borrow until you find 5mm.

Thanks for the offer guys, I'm actually not sure if I can use a 10mm either. I brought over my 12.5mm turner spacers, and it was too much with my tire(275/30/19). I can't be sure till tomorrow, I will give them a call first thing. For the first time in my life, I think I mumbled the words I never thought I'd say -- no more modding. Purely words out of frustration, haha.

Just got a call from a friend that may have located a set of 5mm spacers, keeping my fingers crossed.

I thought about the same thing, but at the end of the day I need this to work with my wheels I rather find a more permanent solution.

Offset of the BBS is 19x9.5 ET28. I wonder if the 19x8.75 would have fitted better. I don't think I would hesitate too much for a set of Fall Lines, anyways

Just thought the wheel swap would make your situation into a less urgent one.
Hope everything gets sorted out.

Nah, I completely get what you mean. It was actually the first thought to come to mind on my way home. But by time I started typing this thread, I realize I'm as fed up as I have ever been with this. Thanks though.

Pretty sure the Fall Lines are ET26 or ET28.

Awesome! I will get to you asap.

Update: So they decided to use my 12.5mm spacers to test fit and do some measurements. As it turned out, it fit perfectly with minor rubbing on fender liner @ full LEFT lock. I'll probably downsize one and go with 5mm or 10mm. Personally, I hate running spacers because of the random vibration it could bring some times. Oh well!
