I must be being a bit solid here. Recently bought 15mm spacers for rear wheels. New nuts need to be 60mm to cater for this. Standard ford 12 x 1.5 I believe with a 19mm head. I can't find any other than very strange looking spiky ones with 17mm head.

Please, someone put me out of my misery and add a link to suitable ones!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance!!

If I have understood correctly, you need longer studs fitting in the hubs if using anything over 6 mm spacers.
If you try to use the existing ones with 15mm spacers you will be at serious risk of losing a wheel or two at speed.
I lost a wheel off my trailer twice.......before I worked out the cause and bought longer studs.

Agreed completely. I think I'll go.for 12mm spacers as it appears you can buy properly manufactured ford nuts with a slightly longer collar to fit 12mm spacers correctly. I incorrectly thought the wheels were held on by bolts not studs...

Are you buying hubcentric spacers, or standard flat disc spacers?

Thanks for explaining so fully. I was worried about your plans, but that makes sense now. Every day is a school day, even in the University of the Third Age.
