    Hi, I got mine while on holiday in Florida last September from an ebay seller because I saved about £35 p&p by getting free shipping from California to our place. They then came home in my suitcase! The seller was called venomwheelaccessories. Very helpful when you contact them.

    Tony.

    ps. They are the "hubcentric" type which is the best type to fit.

    pps. Have a look in GadgetZ, Gizmo'Z and Bling section under the forums tab. There is the post from when I fitted mine.

    Fit Hubcentric ones as Tony has stated, looking at your pictures you will not need a huge spacer to push the wheel out, best bet is to measure the gap between your rear wheels and the rear wing, this will tell you which width spacers you need.

    A little guide to help :) http://www.turnermotorsport.com/t-wheel-spacers.aspx
