Spare Tire Wheel Spacer


What you need to mount the '93-'95 on cars equipped with front and rear big brake kits

A problem with upgrading the brakes on the FD is that the larger brake rotors make use of the OEM USDM spare tie impossible. For those of us still using our cars on the street having a spare is still important. The solution? A giant spacer to shift the spare out far enough to clear the BBK. And FWIW the spacer when bolted to the back of the donut spare will still sit nicely down into the spare well in the hatch area.


The spacer mounted to the spare wheel and installed in the spare tire well in the hatch area. no issues to speak of.

Specs on the spacer: 2.25 thick!!!, (5 lug x 114.3mm, 67.1mm center bore, lug thread pitch 12mm x 1.5mm)

I ordered from www.wheeladapters.com and spoke directly with a great old-timer named Fred Goeske. He will want to talk your ear off but play along and he will machine the spacer for you. Plus he is a wealth of racing history and information. An entertaining guy to chat with if you have a few minutes.
