    10mm Wheel Spacer Advice

    Hi all,

    I need some 10mm (per side) spacers for the rear of my B7 A4 2.0T with extended taper bolts.

    Have heard recently that some don't fit, so I need some that do.

    I'm happy to buy bolts separately if somebody can tell me the dims for 10mm extended.

    Do they need to be hubcentric if the hub sticks out half a mile. I run spigot rings so assume it would be hub-spacer-spigot-wheel.

    Any recommendations welcome. Or if you have some lying around.

    Assuming you're meaning 10 per side and not 10mm per axle(5mm either side)?

    Easiest thing is to take a wheel off and measure bolts and add 10mm.

    Can't help with source of hubcentrics that fit, others say they run them but seem to be reluctant to post up details of them, either that or hub sizes vary across A4s.

    What you could try, As you're running spigots I think you could take the spigot out the wheel, slide the spigot on to the hub then draw it back as if you were removing it so as it's 10mm from the face of the hub. If it still sits tight on the hub with no play then you could get away with a plain spacer as there will still be enough of the hub protruding to safely mount and centre the wheel.
    Depending on how deep the spigot sits in wheel you might need to add the depth to the 10mm if its slightly recessed, if it sits flush with the face of the wheel you'll be good with just drawing it back the 10mm.

    I used this method before ordering my 6mm spacers for my summer wheels, I've shortened my hubs(shaved) but still had enough for a 6mm flat(plain) spacer and can still safely mount and centralise the wheel on my hub.

    10mm Wheel Spacer Advice

    Yeah, 10mm per side - original post edited.

    Thanks for the advice, might check with a 10mm MDF wooden tester.

    Cheers

    Does fitting spacers require a wheel alignment check afterwards?

    I just had mine done when the springs were fitted; hence the question. I'm not in a hurry to have another alignment check.

    Spacers will alter it slightly, but not enough to get it re-done.

    I always was told that if you increase the face-to-face length, that it would slightly alter the camber both sides. Only a small amount.

    I may be wrong though.

    Spacers will only minimally affect camber/wheel alignment. The thing it affects the most is the load on the wheel bearings.

    it will adjust camber slighty, think if you had 1 foot wide spacers the cars weight would push it down more
