    what size Spacers??!

    Hello

    I have a 2003 S3 8L on standard springs so NOT lowered with the original 17" Avus alloys on

    What size spacers are best for both Front and Rear, so that they dont look lost in the arch?

    I want the wheels to sit flush with the arch

    Thanks

    i used to use 15mm rear and 11 front
    My car is lowered though so didnt go for full on flush. i just wanted to fill the arches a little more.

    I'd say 20mm rear and 10mm front for the S3 8L.

    This is 15mm front 20mm rear, for the perfect balance maybe a 12-13mm upfront to match the rear.
