    Hi,

    I’m looking at some new wheels for my A3 there 18” x 7.5” with ET56, they need wheel adapters and the smallest I can find is 15mm just wondering if anyone knows if I will have any issues or will it be ok, car will be lowered on eibachs sportlines as well?

    Any advice would be great.

    I am running 14mm spacers on the front of my S3 which is lowered on 25mm H&R (so approx 55mm lower than std a3) and with 225/40/18 tyres, i get no issues what so ever.

    Why do you need wheel adaptors?? Or are you buying 5x100.........

    Spacers are always a good addition on standard wheels.

    Yeah i think i'll get the wheels on and Eibachs and see how it looks/drives first before deciding on the spacers.
