    anyone have H&R wheel spacers? what size to get?

    hi guys. i got a 997 (non S) w/ 19" carrera classic wheels.
    i'm going to get H&R springs, and thinking of getting the H&R spacers as well.

    thinking of going w/ the 7mm, but wondering if the 14mm spacers would be better? anybody w/ experience w/ this?
    any pictures would help immensely as well.

    THANKS!

    Re: anyone have H&R wheel spacers? what size to get?

    I went with 7mm on the rears just to see if it was enough to make a difference asthetically. Now, I'm thinking of moving the 7mm spacers to the front and going with 14mm in the rear. It's not that the 7's don't make a difference (they do), I just think it would "just right" if I added a few more millimeters. Others have posted that 10-12mm would be optimal, but I don't know of anyone who makes those sizes. 14mm may be a bit too wide for C2S applications, I dunno.

    FYI, I have a C4S with 19" Classics.

    Re: anyone have H&R wheel spacers? what size to ge

    the 14's should look great.
    I am currently at et49mm with my kinesis f110 and a 15mm spacer.
    so if you put a 14mm spacer on the stock 67 offset then you should be at 53mm.
    just make sure you get the right bolts and have the acorn washers for the new bolts.
    weasel your c4s classics have a different offset in the rear, I think you will be fine though there is alot of room with the stock wheels.

    I'm not sure what the final offset would be with the 14's and the classics on the C4S. Are C4S classics different from C2S classics? I thought it was just a difference in tire sizes only. Again, I dunno. I'll take a look this afternoon to see what's stamped on the wheels. With the extra width of the rear fenders and the wider rear track, figuring the right spacers for that "just right" look is a little harder than I intially thought. Ideally, I'd want the outer edges of the rear tires to be within a couple mm's of being flush with edges of the wheel well -- but under no circumstances beyond the wheel wells' edges.

    Does anyone know what size the factory provides with the "spacer" option they offer?

    Re: anyone have H&R wheel spacers? what size to ge

    the offset on the c2 classics is 67 and the offset on the c4 classics is 51mm.
    I think my friend put 15mm on the rear of his c4s with the classics but I am not 100% sure, you can just measure it to see exactly how many mm will bring the tire to where you want, the type of tire make a difference too since the side wall is different from michelin to pirelli or continental.

    the factory has 5mm spacers on the option they provide. hardly noticeable on the rears and much higher cost than aftermarket spacers.

    Re: anyone have H&R wheel spacers? what size to ge

    Is it necessary to change the lug bolts when adding spacers. If so (I'm sure it is a good idea) is there any correct length to use/ Does the factory make longer bolts? Thanks all.
