wheel spacers

If I were to put wheel spacers on my bag wheels to get new wheels over my old drum brakes where do I get them? Are the a hard item to get or are they readily available.

I purchased the ones on my 94 ST from Fred Goeske. They were not cheep but that was in 2000 or so. His web site is http://www.wheeladapter.com/wheel_spacers.php

I think RTE http://www.rovertym.com/ has them too.

I saw Doug or someone mention some recently for 80/pr. That seemed cheap at the time but I can't remember where it was posted you'll have to PM him.

Rovers North has them as well http://www.roversnorth.com/store/p-5...ur-1-14in.aspx .

Now whether or not any of these will fit an 85 is beyond me : )

Cheers!

thanks.

I never followed up with you, but I assume the door cards were right?

Are there a lot of after market suppliers for defenders out there? I haven't come across a lot.

Thanks Doug!

"Are there a lot of after market suppliers for defenders out there? I haven't come across a lot."

Wow I don't know where to start. Does anyone know of a link to someone's website that has a pretty comprehensive list of resources?

Rovers North usually has it but it will cost you. I usually don't mind supporting them because they have created a good resource for our community in their website.

Atlantic British
British Pacific
Rovers Down South
Just to name a few.

Might need to start a new post to ask this question or use the search ^^^ button to find specific post on what your working on.

The EZ-Accessory ones have 16x1.5 bolts.
The guy on ebay has one with 14x1.5 bolts.

Which ones fit the standard lug nuts? I can't figure out what threads the bolts are
