Default Wheel spacer for M800?

Hello can anyone tell me where i can get wheel spacers for my 800 in Bangalore? I'm planning to put them on the rear so that i could make the back track width the same as front. With the original rear track the wheel seems to be hiding!

Ok, i have the same problem that sankar has, the reason being we have the same car!!!

Now i have an issue with my cars rear track, and a friend coming down from the states is bringing me a set of 1" wheel spacers! I'm happy that they're coming but i have read elsewhere on the forum that spacers affect the way the suspension works.

I understand how the might affect the front suspension, considering the wheels are suspended radially along the lower arm pivot, and by spacing them we would be actually increasing the swing and in turn stressing the components, fine i understand that!!

Now i just want to space out my rear wheels and increase the rear track, everyone here knows that my cars rear suspension is 'leafspring' type, and doesn't work radially but more vertically, will the spacers still affect anything???

What i figure is that the only stress might be put on the wheel lugs and the spacers lugs, right? So if the quality of the parts that will be stressed is real high, am i good to go ahead!!!

I haven't got the spacers yet, they're on their way, here's what they look like!!

140$ !!!! Mine is compliments of the ALLOY dealer! Hey has fitted umm... 4mm x 2 thats 8mm of spacers on the front wheels. he then did the alignment with the spacers on and other than a slight "tightness" of the steering i havent got any problems yet. The car rather feels very planted on high speed turns and now the wheels fill up the arches properly.

The car is a santro xing and tyres are potenza gIII 175/60/13

Why didnt you just buy alloys with a greater offset instead?

Dude, for 140$, I could get you 14" OZ rims. It's a waste of money.

Guys make these same spacers for like 200 bucks each. I need a set of 4, for a PCD conversion.

There are only 2 or 3 designs with a -ve offset available in our market, and those are jeep spec, offroad wheels, plus i'm just looking to widen the rear track!!!!
