R32 at 21,242 miles

posted to 2004 volkswagen r32 on jun 15th, 2005 with tags cars and r32

installed ecs 2mm wheel spacers on the front wheels to give additional clearance between the wheel spokes and caliper face during maximum heat expansion and flex, as well as between the inner edge of the rim and the strut body. although i have not experienced any clearance issues in the ~4000 miles since installing the stoptech brake kit with the current wheels and suspension, the spacers give the 2mm of clearance recommended by stoptech without negatively impacting the suspension/wheel setup.
