    Advice on wheel spacers

    H guys a couple of weeks ago I purchased a set of replica TTRS (new shape) wheels. They are Et35 8Jx18 so almost same as the original 18" rstt's. My question is though I want to lower my car on springs in the next month or so and want the wheels to sit flush with the arches as they are sat a lil into the arches atm. What's the best size of spacer to go? Thanks

    The bigger the offset number eg ET35 the further into the arch the wheels will be. So if you buy 20mm spacers your new offset will be ET15.

    I'm running ET22 and ET17 with my standard S3 wheels at the moment and they could still come out another 5mm

    They were off eBay a year ago, blak anodised from a company that was having a clear out of old equipment. I think PW Motorsport do them for quite a good price and he has his own board on this forum. Have a look in the company section under forums.
