Thread: Hub centric spacers and deep 6 Fuchs

    Hub centric spacers and deep 6 Fuchs

    Hey guys… I have a question that I’m hoping I can get help with.

    Essentially, I have a 70s with Deep 6 Fuchs. I want to run a 7mm spacer up front and a 12mm (maybe 15) spacer out back. Obviously going to need longer wheel studs, but what spacer should I run? Will the elephant racing hub-centric spacer tuning kits work with the early Fuchs?

    I’m worried that a hub-centric spacer won’t work on an early Fuchs (deep 6) as those cars weren’t hub centric and I *think* they had a smaller hub bore?

    I think the early wheels have a larger center, so no contact with hub centric center on wheel flange or spacer.

    Oh man… I hope that’s the case… I thought they were smaller.

    I have a 72T and I’m running 195/60R15 tires on the front with Deep 6’s and 205/60R15 tires on the rear with 7R's. I’m using 12mm front/15mm rear hub-centric spacers to get the look/ride that I wanted. I went with 72mm wheel studs with open ended lug nuts but you might be able to get away with something shorter. Hope this helps.
