Hi Sam

Yes, that make sense. Did not a spacer on the parts schematics.

Too cold to work on the car.

Ciao

Frank

The 164s i've seen have had this 6-ish mm spacer on the front hubs.

Used a 6mm spacer between rear wheel and hub. After market wheels are thinner at the hub so the lugs still have plenty of threads. You cannot use a 6mm spacer with the stock wheels unless you use longer lug bolts - wheels are just too thick.

Interesting,that would really make the front wide and the back narrow!

From an ePer version:

The spacer is part no. 60508888, listed the same for all stock 12V 164 cars, 2 for each car but the catalog doesn't specify front or rear. All of the 164s I've bought but for the one with aftermarket wheels have had these on the front, stock wheels and all, L and S. Just my experience.

The 5 holes in the spacer are for the lug bolts. The small remaining hole is for the protruding pin on the wheel, which holds the brake disc in place during assembly. It goes on the outside of the spacer, holding it on as well as the brake disc. Naturally, the lug bolts provide all of the in-use "hold-it-together" power, but you need something to keep things from shifting while you are mounting the wheel. Items 6&7 on the B/L figure and item 3 on the S wheel figure are wheel weights. I wondered and looked at the parts list, so I include that info for you, gentle reader.

I never knew that spacers were OEM for these cars. I just learned something!

The stock front spacers are quite thin - probably only 2mm or so. The 6mm ones are after market.

Actual spacer measurement indicates a little over 3mm, very close to 1/8 inch.

Wow. I certainly missed that issue. 6 mm is nearly 1/4" and the spacers are only about half that. The measurement that Kens mentions above is correct for the stock spacers, of which I have (I think) four sets installed and one not installed.
