    Wheel spacers

    A good pal of mine has kindly donated his old 18'' RSTT replica rims off his golf mk4, do these require spacers the fill the arches on an S3?? If so, do people use bolt on spacers or just the normal ones with longer bolts.

    Edit: These rims are replica ones, do the genuine centre caps fit? The copys are shockingly ****e !! TIA

    If they are et35 I would recommend 20mm rear and 10mm front.

    If you go for H&R you can use the DRA's for the rear that bolt on and the DR's with extended bolts for the front.

    Heres mine with 20mm on the rear with et35 wheels -

    As said, 20mm and above are bolt on and anything less are bolt through.

    I'm running et35 OEM RSTT's on my S3 and they look miles better with spacers. I went 15mm at the back and 10mm at the front (H&R ones with longer bolts). The before and after pics are below.

    Before:



    After:

    > S3 225 (03) - OEM+
    > 205 GTI (90) - Limited Edition Miami Blue with full leather - 1 of only 300 made
    > Clio v6 255 (05) - Lethal Weapon
