Spacers for Boost on ROW 90

Is there a specific size wheel spacer needed for Boost's on an ROW 90? Will 30mm do the job?

Thanks!

30mm will work to clear the drive flange if that's your concern, but the spacers are designed around the longer alloy wheel studs so you won't have the appropriate amount of thread engagement on the wheel nuts that hold them.

Ash - Thank you. Is there a specific or more ideal size spacer that will still clear the flang and provide enough thread for boosts?

Don't forget to eliminate the locking washer rings and use loctite instead of it to hold the flange bolts in place. Even with spacers and the correct length studs you may have the flange bolt heads hit the inside of the alloy rim preventing you from mounting them. This is only the case on the fronts and not the rear and is dependent on the thick flanges. If you put a US disco axle swap on then you shouldn't have any issues.


You could get creative and take off some of the inside of the alloy rim or shave down part of the flange bolt heads but I wouldn't recommend those methods.

The RHD guys can't just swap front axles since anything you'd find in a junkyard would be LHD. The thing to do is swap CV's, stub axles, rotors and drive flanges from a Disco (or RRC if you want vented rotors, although then you need new calipers as well) into your RHD swivel ball housings to be set up for alloys, Wolfs, and/or spacers the proper way.

Let me rephrase it this way. The pic is my current set up for wheels with spacers. When I swap out with Boost, will the current spacers suffice?

Boost wheels in Texas? What's next, skinny chaps? Sideways wearing cowboy hats?

I have the same wheels as you...and as far as I can tell the Boosts are just a slight design pattern difference....the backspacing and other dimensions are the same...so the 30mm that we both run should not be an issue...
