Where is the best place to get thin hubcentric wheel spacers? I need something pretty thin like 1/4 inch max.

My recommendation: http://www.motorsport-tech.com/

I've been using this company for years, never a problem with anything they've created for me (and I've done some unconventional things with wheels).

Everything is custom, nothing off-the-shelf, so it does require a little more time - 100% made in the USA.

Probably not the cheapest, but in my book, the best.

Currently using 2.5mm hub-centric spacers (0.100") from Motorsport. Their website lists 3mm as the thinnest they will typically produce--about 1/8" thick, so a 1/4" spacer will be completely doable. At 1/4", you may want to think about longer studs or ET (extended-thread) lug nuts.
