    20 mm spacers

    I dunno what you guys call it - we call it distancers - you know what I mean?

    I have (will have ) an s line, so a 20 mm lower suspension, 17 inch rims 225/45 tyres, all fitted in audi, will these spacers fit? Any rubbing or whatever? How much would you recommend? I'm not planning on dropping the car (yet)....

    Thanks bros

    i dont think you will need to fit 20mm spacers if you are getting standard audi rims

    maybe if you bought an aftermarket set of rims and the offset was wrong

    why do you want to bring them out so far?

    Looks better IMO, especially from the rear, but I don't know if 20 mm would be too much...

    20mm would be too much in my opinion, you will definately risk rubbing on the rear arches when cornering.

    one of the guys from dpmautostyling (i think it may have been Damian), recommended 10mm on the front and 15mm on the back for my s-line with factory fit 18in RS4s. presumably the same would do for you.
