    Help

    I need a set of hub centric spacers for the font on my 2004 C55 AMG.
    I have factory fitted AMG front discs.

    Can anybody please tell me what size center bore I need to fit on the fronts?

    Is it 66.6 ?

    You need to come straight to the point and waste any words.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Ah ha.

    Hence my question. I believe that rears on my C55 are a smaller bore than the fronts. This is because the I ordered a set of four from TyreMark in Sittingbourne. The rears went on lovely. The fronts would not fit over the center bore.

    So on my C55 front and rear are different & I know that I have standard AMG discs front and rear.

    I do have a spare wheel ;^) never had to use it. And |I know where you are coming from. I am sure that the ones that TyreMark ordered and fitted were 66.6. But they would not fit on the fronts. Unless they got the wrong ones in the box.

    Now I need to take one off the rear and try it on the front??

    The answer is all Mercedes wheels have bore of 66.6mm.

    No idea what make. They are solid billet machined and look very neat. They went over the cap but would not mate up to the actual hub. They looked to be a couple of mm too small.

    The rear are a good interference fit. So I will take one off the rear and try on the front.

    OK

    The rears did not fit on the fronts. There is a flange in front of the Hub that stops the spacer from mating up. A search tonight on Google took to me another post where somebody had the identical issue. The solution is indeed that the fronts and rears are different. H&R or Eibach make hub-centric FRONTS specially for the C55 AMG that are machined to accomodate the flange on the axle. I will now order a set of these and post an update.

    so what you are saying is that the bore is correct (66.6), but the depth is not.

    the minimum size avalible for the fronts must be wider than the minim for the rears then?

    wheel spacers for the front - MBWorld.org Forums

    That thread includes photos that show the problem. Basically the front and rear stub axles are machined differently. The front has a small flange that stops the spaced from fitting onto the bore.

    I need to order specific H&R AMG front spacers as per he thread above.

    Hi Bruce,

    The guys are correct in saying they will be the same front and rear,

    Just to let you know EuroCarParts are the sole UK importer & Distributor for all H&R parts :p

    Drop me a PM with the width you require, and although they are exempt from the 25% forum discount, ill sort you out :)

    OK. So that still leaves the statement that the rear stub axles do not have a flange and the fronts do. In the thread I posted from MBworld. You can see that various people, have experienced the issue that I have and state clearly, that you have tell H&R that these are for the FRONTS. I need the 10mm hub-centric and extension bolts for the fronts. NB my wheels are not OEM so I believe that I need non-OEM bolts which have a different taper to the OEM ones.

    Can you please get me a price for the a FRONT pair and bolts. To avoid me investing more of the dwindling kids inheritance - will you be prepared to give me back my dosh if they are not correct?

    For Clarity. This is for a 2004 - AMG C55 with standard AMG discs and hub carriers, front and rear.

    Many Thanks for trying to help me out.

    Regards

    Bruce

    Hi Bruce,

    Ill drop you a PM with price and part numbers.

    We only sell the specific H&R kits so you'd be guaranteed the correct one, and naturally if it doesn't fit you will receive a full refund aslong as it comes back as new.

    Hi Bruce,

    sorry for the delay.

    Is it 10mm each side or 10mm track widening you are after?

    Also, do you know the thread length of your standard bolts?

    10mm each side please.

    So that is one pair of 10mm Hub-Centric spacers. To fit on the FRONT of a 2004 C55 AMG.

    No need to worry about the bolts (I already have a set)
