I’ve got a set of new wheels coming in and I want to run a 10mm spacer in the rear. The wheels have a center bore of 73.1 so obviously I have to use 73.1-57.1 hub centric rings. Does anybody know what spacers are compatible with hubcentric rings? I currently have a 10mm spacer from 42DD with a lip that is wheel centric (57.1) to all OEM VW wheels. These spacers are not compatible with hub centric rings because the extended lip is made to fit OEM VW wheels. I need spacers with a straight lip that acts as an extension of the hub if that makes sense.

What wheels? Some have a dropped bezel area were there ring is still going to sit deeper in the wheel and still clear that.

What about getting spacers for a 73.1 hub and use the ring inside the spacer?

I don’t think hubcentric rings snap into a spacer the way they snap into a wheel.

Black forest industries also makes spacers specifically for aftermarket wheels that have a different style wheel-centric lip. Bought them for my Rotiforms on my Mk4 and they worked great when my H&R spacers wouldn't sit flush.

I found a shop on Instagram called Ledger Designs who made me up a custom set. Did a 10mm 57.1 to 73.1 conversion spacer. Turned out perfect.
