    Wheel Spacers

    Good morning all,
    im planning on upgrading my suspension soon, i think im going to go for eibach coilovers. what are people thourght on these?
    My real question is how far can i space my wheel out (with spacers) with out getting scrub? i was hoping to get them out 10mm on either side.
    Does anybody know if i would need to get my arches rolled to allow clearance?

    Thanks

    Depends how far you're wanting to lower it and also what wheels you have on it?

    10mm front and 15mm rear i'd say.

    Thanks for the input, it would be really nice to get the arches flared out to give it more of an rs4 wide look.
    does anybody know of any a4's that have had the arches pulled out and flared?

    20mm will be fine on the rear also.
