    It's bollox mate! You can't get 3-5mm spacers that are hubcentric, it's impossible..

    Cheap ones are fine as the wheel still has a sizeable chunk of the hub to sit on.

    Anything from 12mm up, I would use hubcentric (I wouldn't use 10mm either). Depends on tyre size etc too. I have 30mm spacers on the front of mine.
