    Best spacer size for A3?

    Sorry if this thread has been posted already. Have looked for ages to find one!

    I have an A3 Quattro, Will be lowering it on S3 H&R cups (25mm drop for S3, 35mm for my S line) and H&R ARB's.

    What are the best size spacers front and rear to fit without any rubs at all. I've heard 10mm front 12mm rear and then seen lots of 15mm rear.. I really dont want any rubbing. I do occasionally have people in the back of the car but only 2.

    The ET of my current wheels are ET54.

    Cheers guys and girls!

    If you don't want any rubbing at all, I would go 8 in front and 10 in back. I have tried both 12 and 15 and got a lot of rubbing.

    If you don't want any rubbing at all then I'd say no more then 10mm on the rear.
