Speaking of Wheels

The spacers I found out were only 12mm.  I went with them because some ealier
misinformation from certain sources I got when getting these suggested I might
have problems with 10mm.  Turns out that would have been the correct size.

Only fronts need the spacers due to the UFO disks - the protrude so far out
into the wheel that there is about 10mm space between the hub and the wheel
bolt flange.

I had no tracking problems and felt perfectly comfortable with the setup both
high speed and turning.  Larger tires could have been used, but these Fuchs
were originally on a '87 5ktqa  - no need for spacers there.  Also no need for
spacers on the UrQ too, which is why I am reluctant to let them go, but alas
need the cash, so I may have to.
