spacer

  1. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I have just brought a bmw 320d the car is fitted with 225/40/18 all round, but the rear looks like there’s a massive gap between the wheel and the arch? What size spacers do people recommend? And would I need to put on the front to?

    Hi The spacer under the wiper arm is stuck solid - how can I free this up? Is it a push fit or does it screw on??? I am replacing the scuttle panel so it has to come off! Any ideas will be really apprecaited.... Thanks.
