    You might have to change the rear spacers down to 12mm as i think 15's might rub a little. You can try taking the rear screw out the arch. If its a sportback you will have to file the tab down aswell.

    On my sportback i have 11mm spacers on the back and i had slight rubbing on large potholes/bumps but once i adjusted the tab i have no rubbing at all.

    I have 15mm spacers on the rear and 10mm on the front on the standard s3 rims with s3 brakes and no rubbing or issues at all, once lowered the clearance still looks like it would be ok though ?

    None yet but will be H&R (as that seems to be the spring of choice if not going the coilover route) and as you can see (well sort of) from the attached picture there is room between the rim and arch even with a drop as they are not totally flush.





    Just thinking though your wheels are a 19 arent they ? If so that blows my theory out of the water ?

    It all depends on how low you go.

    A lotof people get some rubbing on 12mm spacers when lowered so it can only be worse with 15mm.
