    Best spacers for the S3

    Hi im going to be putting the later spec S3 wheels (split 5 spokes) on my 8P2.

    But i want them to fill the arches so which are the spacers to go for 10 mm front and 12mm rear OR 12mm all round

    Or any better ideas ?

    I was looking at the H & R ones from DPM do they come in pairs or 4s ? ALso what are the best locking wheel nuts for this set up ?
    S3 gone but not forgotten, now on a Golf R

    I am about to fit 11mm all round on my S3 so I will have pics up soon. They are Forge hub centric spacers.

    As mentioned 10mm front and 12mm rear is the most popular option.

    Got my spacers today from a company on ebay, the 10mm ones are in aluminium but actually measure 12.5mm and the 12mm ones are black and measure 12.5mm. Phoned up to complain to see what had gone wrong, they said they are that size to clear the spigot, so i asked for some more "10mm" silver ones and will be sending the black ones back.

    So will 12mm be ok all round ?
