    Hi All,

    I'm keen to buy a set of Oettinger RZ's that have come off a 8N TT.
    They're 5x100 so thats sweet but they're 18x9 ET31 fitted with 235/40 rubber.
    Anyone running a similar offset 18x9? Will I need to run small spacers up front?
    Any ideas whether I'll hit the strut or similar?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Patrick.

    What are you putting them on?
    Is it lowered?

    Sorry, forgot to add they're going on a standard height 8L S3.
    Will probably drop it on some coils soon

    I'd put 10mm spacers front & back

    I'm running 9.5j with an ET23 & I can only just fit a fag paper between the rim & the shocks lol
