Review eBay Spacers $65 Shipped!!

Postby celicat93 » Wed Jul 18, 2012 1:35 pm

I just ordered and received a pair of 25mm spacers that I bought from eBay. I had a friend of mine who's a machinist look at them and he said they're very high quality. The nuts (edit: nut threads, I should say) are formed rather than cut, making them stronger, all the machine work is clean and precise.

Seller: Precision European Motorwerks, pe-motorwerks( 11998)

These are the ones I ordered, suggested by the manufacturer for Celicas made from 1986-2009.

PS - it looks like they make their own shock absorbers, I wonder if they could make rears for us?!?

I asked them if they'd do a run of shocks for us and they said they're moving away from doing shocks. They wouldn't even consider a group buy. :x

They do not make a hubcentric 5x100 to 5x114 adapter. They also told me they will not do custom orders. So I guess I will get my adapter elsewhere.

Sounds like they are trying to become more of a main stream parts producer and not a "machine shop" or custom type shop..

Atleast they will save some of us spending so much on spacers.

Did the 25mm spacer studs sit flush or below the spacer or do you need wheels with holes inside to fit them. I know their 20mm needs wheels that are compatible.

I have 16'' wheels with 255/50 tires. Offset is +35, I pretty sure. I wanted to get some spacers for the rear for a long time! If I put 20mm spacers, do I need to roll the quaters???

25mm sit flush so compatible wheels are not required.

Im running 25mm spacers with 18x8 rims 235 35 18 tires offset of +35. Mine were already rolled before instal but it looks like without they would have needed to. I would for safe measure.

Just make 100% sure your wheels are compatible with a 20mm spacer first... That was an annoying ordeal. :P

I'm going to put 25mm on the front. Then I am getting 100 to 114 adapters made for the rear.
