I was quoted $125 for each one in San Jose, Ca. I thought that was a rip off. Now that sounds cheap compared to the $700 a set. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif[/img]

I like the spacers because it will give you a wider stance with all early 16 & 17" Ford wheels while using early VW brake drums, disc's. If you get a flat, or whatever, you can still throw a stock VW rim on and keep going.

Where can you get that 5x5.5 plastic thing you were talking about? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/confused.gif[/img]

I have a set of five early Ford wires, 17", and have just sandblasted them so I can get them powdercoated. My buddy races sprint cars and one of his best friends has a big machine shop down in Paso Robles, Ca. and he thinks the machinist can make them, adaptors, quite esily. Cost?????
