    Hi there

    having major probs fitting different offset amg alloys to my w124

    been told it may be badly fitting spacers not are not balanced properly

    any ideas where i can get snug fitting ones so they sit central on the hub

    many thanks

    Michael

    Ensure the spacers are hub-centric or you will never get rid of wheel wobble!

    Hub centric means they fit over the hub just like the wheel does. The hole in the middle must be 66.6mm diameter.

    The guys who fitted the wheels for me put 2 5 mm spacers on but they did not fit tightly over the hub they were really loose
