Rear wheel spacers

Was wondering if some one could give me an installation price for rear wheel spacers.

Re: Rear wheel spacers

If you don't have a torque wrench to retorque the lug nuts, take it to a local service station. They shouldn't charge over $15-$30 to R&R the wheels.

Usually between 80-95 ft. lbs. depending on the diameter of your stud.
If you have your owner's manual it is listed in there.

That's strange.
Adding a spacer I would think that you would need longer studs?

Umm could you elaborate, because that defies intuitive logic. Seriously.

The spacer has holes the studs slide through which holds the spacer in place then the wheel goes on the new studs that are attached to the spacer... The wheel would not tighten flush to the spacer due to the original studs coming through too far.... So I cut them short re thread them and problem solved.... Not that difficult to understand

New studs come attached to the spacer... Old studs hold the spacer new ones hold the wheel...

Ok, you are referring to the adapter style spacer.
Thanks, that had me a bit confused as most spacers fit over the existing studs.
