    Default Spacers, spigot rings, alloys.

    I have a set of 18 inch fox RS3 alloys. I needed spigot rings as the centre bore was a touch smaller and they vibrated over 65mph. Put new pads in the front then the back of the alloys rubbed against the caliper. I've bought some 6mm spacers which has solved the rubbing but it now vibrates again when going 65+ as the spigot ring is not doing its job due to the spacer. Any help appreciated.

    I have a signum pre facelift. Can you but spigot rings that cover more of the hub. I've looked on eBay but could not see any.

    You may need some hubcentric spacers, some cheap ones on eBay and the spigot should then go on the spacer, I got some 16mm ones for cheap...

    Cheers. 50 pounds! Ooh. Will put up with the vibration untill payday. I don't go above 60 anyway ;-). Are these the only option you think? 16 mm quite a big spacer or do you not notice.

    Yeah as long as you can do more then 5 full turns on a bolt its long enough... You don't need 16 really, but def over 10 to get a lip for the spigot to sit on, if that makes sense...
