The spacers thar RN and AB sell are not hubcentric.

For these you need to go to DAP.

Okay, time to open up a can of worms, how much difference (and what is it) does it make having spacers that are hub centric on the Defender?

I'm completely convinced that it does absolutely nothing to be hub centric. But, I don't have any passion about my opinion so someone can probably out argue me and prove it matters.

I talked to him a while ago and the caveat was "Ohh a land rover, we have to buy the studs from LR at $12.50 each." Even the website says $199 a pair.

Doesn't really affect me as I would love to get rid of the LR bolts anyway.

I told him it was for a LR and he didn't seem to have a problem. All he needed was some measurements.

I spoke to him too, back in Dec.

Ade,
We'd be glad to custom machine the single piece adapters for your Land
Rover. They would be CNC machined from 6061 billet aluminum. Our billet
adapters come with heavy duty studs already pressed in, as well as lugnuts
to bolt onto your Defender 90. 30mm thick will be $199/pair. If you'd like
M16x1.5 Land Rover studs, we have to special order them from Land Rover, and
they are $3.99ea. Standard studs would be 9/16" or M14x1.5. If you have any
more questions, please let me know. Thanks for the email!

I think you are probably right, I was just answering the question as asked.

Some wheels seem to run off center on the non hubcentric spacers, probably because the wheels are drilled poorly. Some of the non hubcentric wheels (American classic?) do the same thing.
