Where can I get custom sized wheel spacers?

I need some wheel spacers made for a 12mm axle. I need it to be 1" long and probably I think it was 3/4" OD. Anyone know where I can get these made? Or buy some aluminum round stock? Plus if it has a .5" hole (even better if it were 12mm) drilled in the center.

I will try lowes later tonight, hopefully I can find something longer than I need so I can just remove some material.

Give Fred from wheeladapter.com a call - (818) 992-5700. They're not cheap, but they're one of the best out there. I've got a set of 2.5" spacer/adapters on my Frontier. Fred's old as and friendly as , and has GREAT customer service and really quick shipping, and I'm not sure if he offers exactly what you're looking for, but if he doesn't I'm sure he can either fab something up for you or point you to someone who can.

Tell him Wil from Spring told you to call him

Will, thanks for the link. It was not what I was really looking for, I need spacers for bike wheels, and it looks like that site was for cars. i'm sure he could make some for me though.

What I need are basically big thick washers.

i ended up ordering some online from http://www.aluminumspacers.com/

I got about 20 in different sizes for $25 shipped.

I did want to source some locally to avoid not riding this project around until next weekend.

Motorcycles Unlimited should move to the Heights...i hate driving outside of the loop.

I may see them for caliper spacers though...now that I will have the wheel centered, i need my caliper to center around the brake rotor.

i guess my initial question should have been, "where can i buy the material?".

yes, i'm aware of him, but he would cost too much, first with a burger or tacos, then with the machining...i did think about going over to him since he's a hop and a stone throws away.

i really would just like the material to fashion them out myself.

i couldn't argue though with the price of $1-$2 a spacer shipped from that one site though. I think it will be worth the wait.

I ordered them at about 9:30 am on the 4th.

They showed up to my work desk at noon on the 6th. That was fast, especially for $25!
