    Brembos

    Quick question for those in the know.

    Will the standard S3 17" wheels fit with Cupra R Brembo's on?

    Cheers

    I believe so yes, strangely many larger 18'' wheels require spacers though....

    From what I've seen, the 17'' avus are fine.

    Yup, they will fit behind the OE 17" Avus rims, it's to do with the shape of the spokes and how they clear the Brake Calipers. The Avus rums have flat spokes at the edge of the wheels, so plenty of room for Big Brakes. The RSTT's have dished spokes which go inwards slightly nearer the centre, so they need spacers.
