    AmD, Forge, TT shop etc etc.

    JBR might sell a ECS version.

    remember your need longer bolts.


    if you go for 10/15 then you will have two lengths of bolts (usually long ones cut down)


    I run 10 front/15 rear.

    mine came from AmD.

    Re: Spacers

    Paul, are your front 10mm spacers hubcentric?

    I got some 10mm for front and 15mm for rear made specially for me, but the fronts wopuldn't fit as the standard hub flange is longer than 10mm, so I couldn't have hubcentric. I'd love to know if my hubs are just bigger than other S3's or whether there's something clever about the spacers, because I just couldn't get any to fit the front of mine [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Re: Spacers

    yes they are.

    the have the cone seat/ lip to fit the alloy/ hub

    However:

    I am running Porsche Brakes on the front, so i no longer have the Audi disc hubs.

    in hindsight, ive never had spacers on oem S3 front brakes.

    Re: Spacers

    I have just fitted eibach spacers all round. They are 12mm at the front and 15mm at the back. I was supplied longer bolts which I had to cut to legth with an angle grinder! I was 130 for the spacers and 1.90 for each bolt! Made a real difference to the stace of the car though, can't wait to get it lowered now!

    Hi Jordan,

    You will need 35mm wheel bolts with the 8mm spacers. The standard wheel bolts will not be long enough.

    Re: Spacers

    Hi all, got 10mm spacers on the front of my S3 and they are hubcentric . I have the standard brakes too. Made them myself. If I remember correctly the counterbores on the back of the 10s was 12-12.5 mm deep. This is possible due to the 45 deg fillet on the outer face. As for different length bolts, I used 40 mm long front and rear with 15mm spacers on the back. No cutting and plenty of thread on the rears.
    Hop this helps.

    Chris.

    You made the spacers yourself? I guess thats what your saying? What did you turn them out of? Aluminium?

    Chris would you fancy making up another set the same as yours with standard breaks?

    If so how much?

    Cheers Shaun

    Re: Spacers

    I'll make another set, but have a look at these here http://www.wheel-spacers.co.uk/

    Don't know what they are like, but from the notes, it says they come with bolts. Look at the 15mm ones. Description says 2x15mm for 45 with bolts. Hell, I paid 40 just for bolts. Forge want 30+vat each with no bolts.
    Find out what the quality is like first though. Anyone on here dealt with them ?

    Chris.

    PS. What about these...http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Audi-TT-225-H-...QQcmdZViewItem
