    Hey all. Im driving down to liverpool tonite to pick up some 19" lambo gallardo replicas.... just wunded if there goin to fit over my porsche gt3 front callipers?? ive got 10mm spacers front and the avus wheels clear fine (the gallardo spokes look fairly flat) also got some 5mm spacers to stick on the front aswell as the 10s just in case. Oh and the wheels are et35 offset!!!

    Should be ok with them if you have 10mm spacers aswell. If you do need more though i wouldn't just put another 5mm spacer on top of the 10, i would actually get 15mm spacers as this will be alot safer but i can't see you needing them.

    cheers mate. I cant see me needing them but ive tried alsorts of wheels on. I tried the TT 240 quattro sport wheels on (quite a curved spoke) and some replica rs4 (which i though were fairly flat but had chunky spokes so touched the caliper even with the 10mm spacer) fingers crossed for the lambos!!!! lol

    i bit of advise if you put spacers on these lambo wheels it makes the steering shake i had this problem wiv mine cause the centre hub on a lambo has a slight canver so when i put the spacers on mine it didn't meet the hub properly the only way you'll get away with spacers are if hubcentric ones and i was told 15mm was the smallest size availible.

    Hubcentric spacers start from 10mm upwards.

    Not hub centric then if the 5mm flat spacer is against the hub first...
    Id ditch the 5mm flat spacers, had them on my old S3 and theyre total ****e, gave me vibrations and all sorts. Bought proper H&R hubcentric ones in the end, perfect.

    Not my cup of tea mate but it looks very clean

    Keep a close eye on the wheel bearings with those spacers and wheels that bit, puts alot of excess pressure on them, especially if you hammer it around corners!

    just ordered some genuine audi centre caps as those on look pretty tacky that are on!!

    I no suspension has been done a trillion times!!!! im thinking of just putting some -25mm H&R springs on for the time been then possibly do shocks / arb etc later just so it sits better..... i dont really boot it round corners so will it be ok with just springs for now???
