    I'm in need of some 8 on 6.5" 2" thick spacer for my rear wheels. I have the 14b FF and I'm just needing a little bit more offset. Does anyone know the best place to get these or possibly have some they want to get rid of? I've found them on Ebay for $100.00 and I thought that was a pretty decent price. Thanks.

    That was the best price that I found while looking for the same thing about a month ago.

    I personally feel that these are unsafe. (Wheel spacers of any kind)

    Sounds like the best price I have seen. I looked for a pair of 4" to widen out the d44 8 lug under the front of my 84 so I could run drw type rims up front and have a whole matching deal there. And that was going to cost me $165 per spacer. So I would be looking at $400 roughly w/shipping and all... And you can find d60's as low as $500 if you look long enough... So in my opin not worth it for my aplication.

    while i dont agree with tim on this one, I do think this is one of those places (like steering, brakes etc) where you should not go cheap. If the rig sees any street miles, your life literally depends on it. I wouldnt mess around in order to save $20 per spacer. I run 1.5" spacers from performance wheel and tire... they are 6061 T6 billet aluminum. About as good as mass produced spacers get... and they really aren't all that spendy.
