      I'm not really a wheel or suspension guy so..have a dumb question...
      what's a hub-centric vs non-hubcentric mean with reference to wheel spacers?
      I'm thinking about getting spacers and someone mentioned that H&R 10mm's are not hubcentric and it causes some "wobble" at high speeds?

      All H&R spacers are hub centric.
      Hubcentric on a VW means that the center hole of the spacer is exactly 57.1mm.
      You can buy cheap generic spacers for like $10, however these spacers have a center hole that's generic in size, maybe 2", 3", etc. These generic spacers don't slip onto the hub and sit perfectly centered.
      ALL H&R trak+ spacers are hub centric, and slip perfectly onto the hub of VW's.

      ah, thanks
      any suggestions on what width i need?
      i have a 04 GTI with the stock 17's (think theyre called Arieta's..look sorta like the Aristos from a 20th or R32) and a H&R cupkit
      i don't want them to really look like they stick out, just push them out a little to fill the wheel well up

      What is the offset and width for those wheels and I can give you the sizings you'll need to fill out your wells nicely without going excessive. [I'm assuming your offset might now be around ET38 and 7" width.] [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      no clue on offset
      i think they are 17x7.5
      edit: from the drivergear website...
      Upgrade your vehicle with the 15-spoke light alloy wheel "Aristo", 7.5J x 17, ET 38. The rim is tested according to the strict specifications of the Volkswagen Group, insuring you a high degree of safety and functionality as well as meeting high expectations for original equipment replacement wheels.
