    I too was just going with what seems the popular choice, but if 13 and 20 is possible then i'll go for those, i suppose it depends on which is the majority winner really

    I had some 20mm spacers on the rear of mine, but because I'd lowered it and not had adjustable tie-bars, the camber was greatly exaggerated and one of them cracked around the hub-centric bit. I took them off when I fitted the tie-bars and haven't got around to having them fixed.

    Here's a few pics of hoggys car with 13/20mm

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthr...ard+suspension

    he is on standard suspension but has rstt wheels. Vorhees does mention that he has 10/15mm and has slight rubbing on full lock but he is running lower than standard so I suppose 10/15mm is probably better if you've got non standard suspension.

    Because vehicles are designed to have the bearing in the center of the wheel, by offsetting the wheel out 20mm it may look pretty but it will fcuk the bearing in time and i cant see you all having the gear to renew S3 rears? Max i'd go is 15, but then i have the eqpt to fit new. Any ideas on prices yet?

    I would take a pair of 15mm, no bolts needed, if the price is good.

    where the hell do you buy longer locking nuts..... and what size are they as standard? research looks like the PW ones are the cheapest anodised around with bolts included..... just need to factor in some locking nuts to see overall price....
