    Im running the same 10mm ecs spacers without issue. Apparently MTM spacers are the best but l'm good so far.

    Changed the wheels front to back, passenger side then test drive then driver side and test drive. Still the same issue. Next ill take the spacer out and try no front spacer. It is very hard to get the spacer snug on the hub.

    Took it out again, I think it's ok it does vibrate a little bit at 110-115 but that's it. It stills goes straight. Ill wait till next oil change to get it checked out. Maybe ill tell the wife it's the steering wheel so I can get a flat bottom. Haha.

    Ginch we need to meet up so I can hear your exhaust.

    I had vibrations when I first got my spacers too. But solved it by simply torqing the wheel in the air. Anyways here's the story.
    I took my car to a tire shop to balance the wheels and let them install the hub centric ebay spacers while they're at it. They torqued the wheel on the ground. But then I drove 110 on deerfoot and the steering vibrated like a Chinese massage chair...
    I thought it was because of the spacers but then I got lots of stuff from ebay and were satisfied with them and never cheaper out on them, this led me to think that the tire guy didn't install it properly. So I took the wheel off and cleaned up the rotors with some polish then torqued the wheels while its off the ground and voila no more vibration.

    Ill try that just for kicks. ( out to the garage). It's weird when I put the wheels on the first time the hubs barely fit this time they fit so much better. And I got the bolts as tight as I could while in the air then finshed on the ground. Stay tuned for a test drive tonight or tommorow.

    That's strange, I have the 10mm ECS spacers too, plus hub centric rings and have absolutely no vibration. Could it be possible that a wheel is slightly damaged? Maybe get a new alignment / balancing done.

    Please tell me you didn't literally use a polishing compound or any sort of product on your rotors. You're asking for brake failure.

    I don't remember but I'm sure I didn't polish my actual rotors' surfaces..... I think it's just the part where it makes contact with the back of the wheel...

    Nothing new for the car been running flawlessly for the last year or so. Just typically maintance oil change and spark plugs.
    I hit 100000km today. have a feeling it might be to small when baby 2 comes in April. Not sure if I'm going to be able to keep it, hopefully but may to get into a wagon of some sort.

    I'd love to say I modded it but unfortunately I havnt.
