You are so right, that the black colored spacer is barely noticeable. Thank you so much for sharing those pics.

I finally installed my 15mm Turner spacers. Spending the extra money on the Turner because of the grey color was unnecessary.

For those that did the install themself, did your wheel sit on the spacer as tight as the OEM hub? The rim would easily slip off the spacer hub if I didn't hold it on. Maybe the rust on the OEM hub gave it that extra friction



I love the look and very happy with the mod. Definitely gives the vehicle a more muscular stance. I think I would have been equally happy with the 12.5mm spacers. The 2.5mm difference is only the thickness of a nickel.
