I hope someone can help me. I have a 2005 A3 TDI sport (non quattro) and it has 19x8 alloy wheels with 235/35/19 tyres. It has been lowered 30mm on Eibach springs.
Now, I want to fit wheel spacers to the rear wheels only as they dont look like they fill the arches enough. I'm not experienced with using wheel spacers and wondered if anyone could tell me here whether they had experience putting spacers on the new A3. THe arches look like they can take it, using a crude measurement with 2 of my fingers pointing up and lying against the outside rim of the tyre they fit inside the wheel arch. No I havent got fat fingers, just normal fingers!
Someone on here has some hubcentric 5 x 112 FK wheelspacers for sale which he ran on his A4 with 8.5x18 alloy wheels no problem. Obviously the A3 and A4 are different.
Basically, will it be safe to fit 15mm spacers on each side or should I aim for something more like 10mm? Is it a trial and error type situation where I just have to fit them and run them on the car to see if it will work? I appreciate any advice.
