Headset spacer thickness?

Hi everybody. I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on headset spacer thickness (not stack height). I ordered some silver alloy 1 1/8" headset spacers to replace the black ones on my 05 Sarthe. When they showed up they were 1/8" thick, versus the old black ones which were 1/16" thick. The new ones look really out of place. I call wheels manufacturing and a few other places and all of thier spacers are 1/8" thick. Are my old ones that are 1/16" thick just an anomoly? Does anyone know where I can get 1/16" thick silver alloy spacers? Thanks!

I found some silver ones here : http://txcyclesport.com/Merchant2/me...ode=H_headsets . Unfortunately I don't think they have the thickness you are looking for.

labman, yea those are the wheelsmanufacturing ones. Thanks for the link though. I've been googling like a fool this afternoon and I can't find any. Oh well, I guess I'll keep looking. Thanks.

Yea, but that's the height of spacer (as viewed from the side). I am looking at the spacer from the top. The thickness of the material used for all silver alloy spacers seems to be 1/8" thick. Versus the black alloy ones, which seem to be 1/16" thick. Thanks though.
