Default wheel spacers

Has anyone ever used wheel spacers for their H-Body? I'm looking for a good quality set that would only have to be about 1/8-1/4" thick.

thanks,

I need them for my chrome wheels on the 98. They're just plasic. Try any shop that sells wheels, they should be able to get you the right fit.

I'm not getting new wheels, I like the stock ones and I already have good tires on them. I need them to work with my Gen II brakes.

thanks,

I have an 87 Lesabre, which would be the same as a similar year Bonneville. They are 10-17/64" diameter. The newer brakes are from a 92 SSE, they are 10-15/16" diameter. You can see my other post in this section for more info. The offset on the rotors is less, making the caliper hit the back for the spokes.

No the brakes changed in 92, 94 and I believe there was even a slight change in 90 or 91.
