is it possible to make your own spacers using a laser cutting machine, or is there anything special about them, i only need 10mm on front and 20mm rear, so i don't think i need hub centric spacers.

i think 10mm track will be to much for my wheels and they will hit the arches, will i be ok fitting 5mm flat spacers to my front? or will i just have to keep it my ride height as is

thanks for the useful posts guys!

on my joms, im lowered all the way with the spring adjuster taken off so about 75mm i think but the front is as low as it can go atm without the spring adjuster hitting the wheel, with 5mm spacers i think ill be able to match the rears.

once again thanks for the replys
