bought a set of np300 tecna alloys, straight off a brand new truck. Owner changed wheels as soon as they bought it. Paid £400 for them with brand new continental tyres on.
I know the offset is different to the d40, et30 and et37. But thought they would still go straight on.
Put the front on and it's touching the brake caliper. So had to remove.

So i need suggestions for wheel spacers please.

So you need to determine the thickness of the spacer needed, roughly guess how thick you need to clear the brake caliper but at the same time the tyre does not rub the wheel arch or wing, trick way of doing this is by washers to determine the thickness on the studs/bolts bearing in mind you may need longer studs or bolts once your happy with the clearance measure the thickness of the washers together with micrometer or ruler and that's the thickness of your wheel spacer

At a guess if et37 is the NP300 wheel inset they would stick in the wheel arch further then that is 7mm difference so maybe 10mm or 20mm spacer the common spacer used is 30mm

Aren't the NP300's something like ET45 ?
Something like this should sort it and maybe even get you out near flush.

The higher the et the closer the wheel will be to the strut/calliper. An np300 wheel with an et45 would need a 15mm spacer to bring the offset the same as a d40 et30 wheel. If you buy spacers buy hub centric ones from a good manufacturer like Eibach.

Ended up buying a set of 30mm spacers, bolted them onto the hubs, and put the 2020 tekna wheels straight on.
There is around 2 inch gap between rear wheels and arches when the bump stop hits, so no chance of hitting the arches.
In the fronts, they stick out a little more than the originals, but again are clear of the arches.
