    bolts required for spacers?

    hey all!

    i've just discovered my 10mm spacers used ta clear my repo RS4 19"s (235/35/19) offset 35mm i thought? dont clear my new repo nouvolari's of the apparant same size? same tyre, same offset?

    i'm going for the 16mm FK spacers from GSF but am stuck on what bolts would be required?

    any help ie M?? conformation, pitch of original bolts an original bolt lengths would be great!

    i'm out the country tryin ta get my car back on the raod for when i get back or i'd check myself,

    cheers

    You should be able to get some by asking for a m12x1.5 with a 16mm extension.

    standard length is 27mm. Just add on the size of the spacer and you should be fine. They are usually fixed sizes that they do but if the ones you want are a few mm longer then either get them machined down but 2-3mm is not going to do any damage as i have tested the theory on my S3.

    As above, you need M14x1.5. Standard length is 27mm.

    40 mil ones are what you'l need. But make sure you get the correct chamfer, depends on wheels, stock vag is rounded chamfer, most aftermarket seem to be V chmafer.

    You can get the bolts form GSF too.
