    S3 wheels spacers?

    Looking to get some wheel spacers to get the wheels filling up the arches better, with view of lowering springs in near future.

    Have read H&R are the way to go? Where is the best place to get a full set and locking wheel bolts?

    Will 12mm rear and 10mm front be best way to go on stock 2010 S3 alloys?

    I ordered a set of 4 x 11mm forge hubcentric spacers with longer wheel bolts from DPM performance. Suits the car well, lowered on H&R's all round also. I don't get any rubbing

    You spaced it the same on the front as on the back?

    Some pics would be great

    you don't get any rubbing? i'm asking because i've put recently 12mm spacers on the back, and after fitting summer tyres i get rubbing at cornering and on bumpy roads. i'm lowered on coilovers. i't might be the summer tyres having different shape? huh...

    None at all... I live in Lincolnshire so bumpy roads are all that we have :P. I have Pilot Sport 3's on the front on Sport contact 5's on the rear.

    If your running standard size alloys then you would be better off going for 15mm spacers. I'm running standard alloys with 15mm h&r's i did have rubbing with two passengers in the back (Car is lowered 35mm on h&r springs) but I've removed the two rear arch lining screws and now have no rubbing at all.

    Is that all 15mm brings it out? I suppose its only a cm and a half. What are you running at the front?
