    No problems at all mate, so long as the offsets are ET35-20 on the rear and ET35-25 on the fronts on 8.5" wide rims.

    Not 100% sure, but you might need wheel spacers to clear your front brakes?

    surprised you need spacers to get wheels on over the rear calipers tbh. I have 18" 8.5 et25 LMs with the standard calipers with no need for spacers - I do have spacers for looks though

    Whats the highest J you can run on a s3?

    is 8.5j inchfront okay with 9.5j on the rear okay? or whats the maximum you can go without needing spacers and longer bolts etc

    Some are running 9.5" all round. I reckon you could push 10 on the rear. It really depends on tyre choice.
