Default Just installed wheel spacers on STI. Centering?

I just installed 5mm spacers to get my wheels to clear the brembos. Spacers had some play in them. I tried eyeing the centering but I am still getting some vibration at speeds above 60mph. How can I get the spacers to be perfectly centered. I believe the inside diamter of the spacers is 76mm or 3in.

Any ideas?

Buy better spacers that are hubcentric.

i meant for the hubcentric spacers, like the kind H&R carry. They are way over $100 a pair, a rip off for machined metal

I paid $17.50 for a set of 4, that seem to be of very good quality.

You really aren't saving any money if the part doesn't work.

$100 for something that does work seems to be a better purchase than $17.50 for something that doesn't...

Why not get different wheels....ones that actually fit without spacers??

IMO spacers are...not good especially for aggressive driving...such as a stage 2 STi.
