    You asked the very same question one week ago?

    All the answers remain the same.

    Tyre/spacer combo for the wide look

    I've ordered a 40 50mm eibach lowering kit, 15mm spacers that will give me a offset of 30, and 4 235 40 18 tyres for my fat five rims

    Take it the spacers come with longer bolts, and the correct head on them?

    are these the ones you went for too?

    Yes they're the ones, I went for 15mm all round tho as is not good having the rear wider than the front on fwd cars

    Re: Wheel spacer help/purchace needed ASAP!

    I might be wrong, as I know very little about wheels bolts, but according to that auction is says the 60 degree tapered ones are for aftermarket wheels. Surely your fat 5's are oem as they are standard audi a8 wheels? Just fitted to a different car.

    Thanks for the links.

    As Crazy says, factory wheels have radius head bolts, aftermarket wheels tend to have tapered head bolts.

    Afraid not my oem wheels (RS6) needed the radius bolts so sent the chap a message after buying them and he just swaps them for the correct ones

    On the spacers, I always get decent quality (H&R Trak+).... that's unsprung weight, so you want a decently light alloy and obviously you want good quality so you don't damage your hubs / wheels / your wheels fall off

    I've got 15mm spacers on my Winter wheels (ET45), but they're only 7j (standard Sport "Trapeze" alloys), 215/55/16 tyres and that's standard Sport suspension.... they're tight, but nowhere near scraping...
