  14. So it looks like there should be a minimum of 8 full turns for m12 1.5. That means I needs 12 turns to fit 6 mm spacers. As a standard bolt is 26mm that means there should be 17 turns on a standard bolt (26/1.5) If I remove 6mm for the spacer that will take off 4 turns. Which now leaves 13 turns left. As I need a minimum of 8 turns as long as the brake disc on the front is not thicker than 5 turns worth (7.5mm) it should be ok. Does that sound about right? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  15. Glad it makes sense, Don't want you thinking that you can just fit spacers, have just 2 turns of thread and you thinking all is well. Function over form. No point it looking pretty if the wheel has fallen off
  16. That makes since mate. With a pitch of 1.5mm, 6mm would technically remove 4 full rotations of the nut. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  17. There is probably a formula somewhere but I like to have at least 4-5 turns of thread on a wheel nut. By adding 5mm of spacer you remove over 3 turns of thread. So go to your current wheels and remove one wheel nut. Count how many full turns it takes to remove the nut. Each turn of the nut is 1.5mm of thread holding your wheel on. More turns on the nut, the more securely it's holding the wheel on. Not enough turns of threads holding your wheel on, the more likely it is to fall off under load.
  18. I'm not sure but I think if its over 6mm there isn't any centre bore left to locate the wheel. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  19. All depends on how much stud you have left to get the nut on. How many turns on the nut do you get now?
  20. @Kev 16v Just a question mate. I'm looking at running spacers on the front. What size can we get away with safely 5 or 6mm buddy? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  21. Just wondering what year the e56 was first used on the celica/mr2? (Apparantly it was on (some?) n/a MR2's) I have an issue and finding this out might help narrow down what year my e153 gearbox is. It has an incorrect ratio gear 5 in it. Which means it's had one from a different compatible gearbox. What I've kinda managed to discern is that it's a 0.82 ratio, which fits perfectly with an e56 5th gear ratio. E153s had different internals from 89-92 compared to 93 onwards, so I need to know which ones are in it, hopefully without having to take it apart first...
  22. So I've got the wheels all fitted which I'm really impressed with them. Only issue is I cant fit the 17mm spacers on the rear due to no cut outs for the original protruding studs. So the plan is I'll get some 6mm spacers for the front which will bring the stance pretty much back to where it was and the rears im going to have to cut 8mm of the rear studs to allow the rears to take the 17mm spacers, unless anyone can think if another idea? Dont want to install new shorter studs and if I install the 27mm ones I'll have to role the arches. Does anyone know the biggest spacer you can safely run without going hubcentric?

  23. Well, you are an expert on small things.
  24. Did you check the geography of the British Isles lately?
  25. Celica owners are weird like that. Subaru owners would never do such a thing.
  26. Pain in the butt mate, try living on an island
