Needing 35 mm Spacers

I just installed CKS coil overs and now they hit the track tires on the front. I need 35mm spacers in order to clear the tires, but I cannot find one anywhere. The usual suspects have a 30mm but a 35mm are hard to come by. Can anyone lead me in the right direction?

What tire are you running? What is the offset of your track wheel?

Sidney, are you sure your wheels have an offset of 27mm? My Apex wheels are 22mm.

Feel free to stop by.....we can mount up my 25mm spacers and add my 5mm spacer and see if the combined 30mm clears. If not we can put the 25mm and 10mm together and see if the combined 35mm clears. That way you know for sure what will work before ordering

I was running the cks coil overs and 18x9.5 et22 with a 25mm spacer. This was the bare minimum if you grind down the cks adjusting collars
