    either 10F/15R or 15F/20R, thats the common option on the standard setup i think

    15mm rear and 10mm front is the norm... 10mm with my RSTT (OEM, 18x8 ET33) wheels fill the front, the 15mm on the rear are tucked in a tad but 20mm is a little too large for day to day for me but should fill them out nicely on my ET33's...

    You will need to factor in the ET of your wheels on any you get... The OEM Avus's you have fitted in the picture are ET32 so will fill out the same...

    no, you need 20/15mm. I was running these with my standard avus wheels and they were perfect in my opinion.

    TT Shop - 15mm / 20mm Complete Wheel Spacer Kit - Including Bolts and Lockers - Audi TT Coupe and Audi TT Roadster Parts, Accessories, Styling and Performance Tuning

    they come with everything you need, and they are top quality, not rusting anytime soon

    heres pics:


    But shortly after these i bought some s4 wheels. So I no longer require such wide spacers, so mine are for sale. Literally had a months use, tops. Still in box etc. PM me if your intrested.
