spacers fitted to discovery 3

Hi ALL,
Working on my disco 3 project at the moment. as per pictures in gallery i have 17" rims with 265/ 70/17 BF goodrich tyres. Want to fit spacers.

What is a good quality brand?
what are the pros and cons of fitting the spacers?
what size, 30mm or 50mm?

Thanks in advance

Had my spacers on for a good 60k, and not eaten any bearings Thumbs Up

Decent spacers are not cheap though. And the cheap ones are utter Censored

Hi Mikey,

What spacers do you recommend? Would you recommend fitting lift rods as well as the spacers?

Because 30 mm are already at the limit of the fender flares.

No rubbing at all with spacers and that size of wheel Thumbs Up

Mine are made in aluminum, but require a torque wrench to tight their bolts at the correct torque
