Spacers on 2010 Sport Pack car

Are there any issues with putting spacer on a V8VS. I want to fill up the wheel well a bit. If good to go what are the sizes the board recommends?
It does have the 19's.
Thanks
Rick

I just ordered H&R 23mm spacers for the rear for my 09 sport package Vantage.

I'm not sure about the front since you need to replace the studs, most spacers not offer.

The rsc 15mm spacers run over $300 for two disks but come with replacement studs.

Hi Tobias
Seems like replacement studs are important after reading about owners having to grind on studs to get fitment.
I am anxious to hear from you on my post "New to me 2010 V8". That is the white car you were looking at. I'd like to get your input on a couple of things.
Hope to hear from you on that thread
Cheers
Rick

I need to adjust to the Aston part prices.

15mm spacers for $350?!

I ordered original H&R 23mm new for under $150 for my Aston.
They at least have safety regulations approved and German TUV.

My 2007 Vantage is lowered on H&R springs and has the RSC spacers and studs, 15mm in front and 20mm in back. They were on my car when I bought it so I don't know how difficult they are to install.

The H&R DRM comes with studs in the spacers.

You mount the spacer with the new nuts on the hub and the wheel mounts with the OEM nuts on the spacer studs.



That is fine for the rear, however I think 23mm is too much for the front.
I assume 23mm are required to provide clearance of the hub studs.

If you want to go less that 23mm you are required to change the studs on the car.

I believe the general consensus is 20 mm on the rear and 13 mm on the front. You have two choices, go with Adaptec and grind of the excess studs, of get the kit that requires you to replace the studs. I believe the Adaptec units are cheaper

The studs are not excess. In the front, they end up being too short for installation of a spacer, while in the rear, the nuts used to attach the adapter to the hub stand proud of the adapter surface if the adapter is less than 23 mm, give or take. The 'too long' OEM studs are able to fit within the wheel pockets that are between each of the stud holes.

Not sure you are entirely right on this. I just had spacers from Adaptec put on. Contrary to popular belief, the pockets in the stock rim will not receive the excsss stud lengths. The pockets angle towards the center. The Adaptec came with studs attached and I had to cut both the front and rear studs because the excess would not fit in the rim pockets

Here some pictures with the rear 23mm H&R spacers installed on a sport package Vantage.

Love it! Shouldn't be more or less.

One other thing to consider when installing hub centric adapters (spacers)
You are changing the camber of the front and rear suspension. Aston Martins have very little camber adjustment margins on the rear wheels.
IMHO, anything more than 20mm on the rear wheels stretches the limit of the camber adjustment.

@ Zettinger: your car has no spacers up front and is on stock springs, right? Any rubbing issues in the back?


@embdenb: I don't see how adding spacers can affect camber
