APE Supersport. 16mm or 20mm spacers?
« on: July 14, 2014, 03:23:44 pm »
Was looking at putting spacers on my supersport. More likely the 16mm spacers. Does anyone know if the 16mm is a good size? And also if anyone has tried this and had any problems?

    Is there nobody who can help me with this? Surely there's someone out there who has put Spacers on.

    Any kind of advice or knowledge would be great???

    I'm afraid I don't know of any AGP or APE cars with spacers..

    I personally don't like them.  If you're going to do it then they need to be hubcentric and you need proper sized bolts.

    Yeah, something like that would be the better option if you were going to use spacers..

    Yeah not a big fan of them myself either. I think the cars look fine to me but could do with being lowered and reducing the gap between arch and wheel.

    The supersport has flared arches with the wheel nowhere near the edge of the arch. Just think it will make it look better from the back :). Each to their own though I suppose :)

    So did you get the16mm spacers in the rear, and did they fit nicely? I´m searching myself at the moment, and deciding what brand and thickness to go for. Thank´s
