    Anyone know where I can find 1" hubcentric wheel spacers? I tried contacting OP Mustang a couple of times but haven't heard back. CJ Pony Parts have no 1" available and no ETA for when they might be available again.

    Keep asking OP. Send him an email. Best product and he supports this site.

    Same as I have on the front of my Boss except they've been on a diet and lost some weight. Like the new design that saves 11 ounces per spacer.

    Tim is great....he will take care of you. I got my spacers and fluids from OP and will continue to do so.

    Hopefully Tim has reached out to help out Boss friend in Nova Scotia? Let us know as he is usually good about getting back and since you are out of the US your emails could be going into his Spam filter?

    Thank you all for the responses. I heard back from Tim shortly after this but the spacers are still out of stock, now says until May 30th on the website. Any other recommendations? I can't wait until then as I'll lose a good chunk of the season by the time they get here.

    If you have extended wheel studs on your car already (1" extra length) then buy a pair of these and knock the short studs out of the spacer to leave holes that fit nicely over the 1/2" wheel studs you already have:

    https://eibach.com/us/i-9673-pro-spacer-kit-25mm-pair-front-only.html

    I'm doing exactly this with a pair of their 24mm spacers on my GT350 with GT350R extended stud hubs.

    Thanks JAJ. I have extended studs on order that's exactly what my backup plan was going to be but was a bit weary of doing that so I ordered from motorsport-tech. Out of curiousity, how's it holding up?

    I've used a set of Eibach 35mm spacers (with the studs knocked out) for the last two years of track days running OEM 11" rims on the front and they're in perfect shape.

    I have a really nice set of 7mm Motorsport-tech spacers that I use on the rear to run 325's with OEM 11" rims. They were on the "we stock these" page and it was 31 days from payment to shipment. It's a great product so long as you're not in a hurry. I wasn't.

    Thanks for the heads up! I am in a bit of a hurry although have a couple of weeks to spare. I'll give them a call and see if they can help.

    FWIW, last weekend at VIR, in the rain, I was swapping wheels spacers on every car, big ones, little ones, 1 inch ones, hub centric and non hub centric..the wheel studs were for the most part, stock size but made by ARP..and longer, nothing seemed to phase these cars. I'm not sure but we may have been overthinking all these spacer issues.

    Dang, for once I think Blacksheep might have been a bit spaced out! Sorry, could not resist.

    I prefer to run without because the grey jelly between my ears tells me so but I don't notice anything different with the 25mm spacer I run with up front.
