I'm running quarter inch spacers on the front axle...and during high speed braking, I get slight shake/ feedback to the wheel.
The spacers are **not** hub centric and I am thinking that this is causing the slight shake.

I do not think the rotors have brake pad build up.

Thoughts ?

efff WHY eye
I went to H&R Hub-centric spacers and the little shake is BYE -BYE
High speed braking (80mph + ) now is phenomenal.

You sure you torqued your wheels properly?

did the bolt pattern fit exactly ?
not only were I running non-hub centric, the bolt pattern was off too. so clearly the spacer was not centered in any way.

How can you run wheels that are not for your bolt pattern?

I have spacers with out bolt pattern... if it snaps on then it works. That's how my spacers are.

This is very good to know. thank you Tigermack
This means I can sell my four 1/4 in spacers
and two 3/4 in spacers

but I know for a fact that the spacers fixed my problem
It was night and day.
80 +mph breaking and NO SHAKE!!!
vs 80 + mph breaking and shake..all in the same day. Just the facts..that's all.
