1 wheel spacer

I won't get into my experience today with a paddock spares rear tire carrier, but I need one wheel spacer, thickness doesn't matter.
Anyone?

The issue appears to be that paddock used bolts that have different threads than rover lugs, so until I can get some input from them the easiest solution appears to be to use a spacer as an adaptor.

fwiw. Paddocks is a re-seller. They don't manufacture anything.

I bought a rear tire carrier from them and it works with LR lug nuts.

Oh, ok. Didn't get what you were trying to do.

I had a customer with a stud that pulled through a spacer. I kept it around to show people why spacers are not a good idea.......might still have it and I'll look today.

Never run into that issue with a tire carrier. Had many issues with several UK vendors of late though.

After going back and forth with Paddock on this, they suggested I go and find bigger washers which obviously wouldn't resolve the issue that the bolts they used aren't compatible with Rover lug nuts. I've ordered one spacer to act as an adapter but would encourage folks to be very careful ordering this or other one-off products from Paddock.
