    Converter/spacer that i used was previously used on a drift car. After the installation, one side of the rim wooble quite serious thus we check and found a crack on it. Lastly my mech recommended me to just tebuk the lubang... now no more issues... :)

    for normal use those converter spacer is good enough (provided u use the good quality spacer..not cikai2 simply made without proper measurement) :adore:
