Hey folks, hope everyon's safe.

I don't know if the subject has been opened before, but I wanted to share a recent experience I had with my Defender's wheel spacers.

I installed a new set of Brembo calipers and HRE rims, but they scratch the rims because they are too big. I had already installed them, and I didn't want to spend money on another set of calipers or wheels.

So I searched on Google for how to solve it and finally decided to install a set of spacers. The effect is very nice. Not only did it solve the scratching problem, but my wheels were also flush with the fenders. The whole car looks fuller and is very stable when driving.

Now, I'm cruising worry-free.
If anyone else is facing similar spacer woes or wants to prevent wheel hub scratches, I highly recommend considering spacers as a viable solution.

Keep rolling smoothly, everyone!
