    hi Alex .
    I just received a pair of AF racing 15mm bolton spacers for my VE Holden . They are from KPG motors ,a sellar on ebay.
    They listed these as fitting the VE and all other commodors

    my questions are : Are the spacers i bought genuine AF Racing ? and will they fit my ve holden ?
    The bolts supplied are a dark grey colour ,are they 10.9 or ??

    Thanks

    PS ,i took the spacers in to the holden dealer to have them fitted and guess wot ....They do Not fit the VE even tho they are advertised as fitting all commodores including the VE.
    i have sent a message to your reseller KPG Motors to get a refund on them.
    what a pain !

    Hi mate, the commodore spacer (center bore 69.5mm) we have in stock is for most of the commodores(Holden Commodore VB VK VL VT VX VY VZ VU VS VR ), but not VE and VF, VE and VF have a 66.9mm center bore. I have checked KPG's advertising, they did have it wrong, I will ask them to revise it, sorry for the inconvenience. The AF Racing wheel spacer they are selling are genuine product, and all the spacer we are selling now are installed with dark grey 10.9 studs.

    We will have the VE & VF 25mm soon. PCD5x120, 66.9mm centerbore, M14x1.5 Studs, 25mm thickness.

    Regards,
    Alex

    Hi,thanks for clearing that up, i returned the spacers to Tony at KPG for a refund today.
    i would buy your new spacers for VE/VF but not 25mm, i need 15mm to bring the front wheels out to almost flush fit. Can you supply me 15mm ?

    thanks

    We will only be making the 25mm for now. However, lots of people asked for 15mm, but no one ask for 25mm yet...

    Prolly because it doesn't fit on the rear and is too big for the front, at a guess!!

    Yeah they'll prolly just manage not to scrape with stock 245/40-19 but not wider eg. 255/40-19 on rear. Ideal for front.

    VLT
    Recently purchased a pair of the AF Racing 15mm Hubcentrics for my VLT...as I torqued these up, I noticed the paint cracking around the edge of the hub locating ring where it meets the spacer...once they were fully tightened, I noticed the hub locating ring had completely broken away from the spacer! Snapped clean off, did the same thing on both sides...material looks like cheap crap!
    Bought from KPG on eBay, currently trying to sort this out, not feeling terribly confident about driving on them!

    It looks like the VLT has a bigger hub ring size... If a bigger steel made hub ring been pushed into a smaller aluminum spacer, it will peel off the paint. And if the car hub ring height is more than the depth of the 15mm spacer center hole, it will force out the spacer hub ring. The spacer hub locating ring is designed to locate the rim, the studs will take the hits. Please contact with KPG, and we will keep an eye on this case. Tks

    I know the role of the hub ring, I paid $40-$50 more for these over the spacers without the locating ring...now that the ring has broken clean off, I'm left with a non Hubcentric spacer which I could have got for $50 through another seller, not $100 through KPG...My car actually runs VT/VX brakes/hubs, so exactly what model Commodore do they fit? And can you advise refund/return policy in this case as this is not my fault the units are damaged. Thanks.

    Falcons have very complicated hub size specs...

    Anyone know what's going on withAFracing? Their site seems to be down. Wondering if I could get some 20mm or 15mm spacers for a VZ commodore?

    Hmmm that's interesting, wasn't able to access it on my phone for like a day or two. Good to see its back up and running, now i was just wondering, i need spacers for the front of my VZ commodore, but primarily i was wondering you guys had conducted any strength testing on your product? Also what material is it constructed off? and is there any warranties?
    Cheers guys.
