Got myself a pair of spacers for the rear wheels.... currently they sit too much inside the well and that makes the bB looks weird.....



Here's a pic of the spacers I got a machine shop to customise for me at Singapore dollars $134.00, which is about 80 bucks US. Material is aluminium alloy I guess.... machinist has been doing that for years.....



Wonder if there would be any safety issues involve... I guess I may have to roll my fender, but I will install the spacer myself first and see if the tires will rub, if they rub, will bring the car to the shop to have fender rolled.

Picturs will be up.

hey Kaptian, what offset are the current wheels? Im running 25 mm out back and no rubbing. Im running 16x7 Work Betas with 40 offset. No problem anywhere. Safe as any thing else too since theyre studded and you wont lose threading.

Cant wait to see them on the car. Nice bB by the way. I love your headlights BIG TIME man! I wish we could get the NCP30 lights here a lot easier than it is :-(

I actually do not know what offset I am running... the current rear wheels do not have any spacers in between at all and they sit right inside....

hahha... I have been asked so many times about rading ym headlights.... but that will be difficult until I get myself the new bB..... which I may come March... as a second car.

ah nice! im not a fan of the new bB really, but to each their own. Kapitan, so I must ask, do you have the NCP30 bB or the NCP31?

It looks like the NCP31 with 30 headlights. Do you have the NCP30 clear windows?

Thanks
Scott

I lookeed at his picture threads Scotty... I think you're right. It's a NCP31 body, but it's got NCP30 headlights. he also has NCP31 glass. Those are factory colored. The biggest give away is if you look at the quarter glasses and rear glass, there is no whitish border line framing the transparent portion along the blackout border. All aftermarket film installs will have the white border (versus factory does not) - dead give away if you're an anal retentive window tinter.

You are right, my rear glass are original factory colored glass.... the front two are OEM tinted with film...

Okay people, am on sick leave today and decided to bring the bB to the shop to roll fenders and fit the spacers...... well, so far so good, no rubbing, but I have been driving alone the whole day, no passengers in car yet.... looks like it is fine...

Here is before...


and after

i'd be scared to run them. i already have low offset wheels on camber and hub spacers. i can see the wheel bearings getting stressed sooner with something like that :-\.
