I have just got some mags for my xd and need spacers for them as they are post au offset but don't know what size I need. They are roh fury 17x8 with 245/45 tyre for the rear and 17x7 with 225/45 for the front. if anybody can help or direct me to a shop that can give me the parts for a reasonable price that would be great.

If they are ROH they will have an offset stamped in behind the spokes usually... It'll be something like +35... You need to get it back to +6 odd to fit the car... I run ROH Drift R's in 17x8 all round and they fit easy (pre AU offset)... Can't remember the exact offset of them now...

When you buy spacers MAKE SURE YOU BUY GOOD QUALITY ONES... Otherwise you may find they'll break the studs off... Also fit the spacer rings to the hubs to ensure the wheel stays centred at all times (wheel shop should be able to help you out with all you need...
