    Fitted some alloys few month back, and been wondering ever since.

    Why do my front wheels sit flush with the arch and the rears are sat inside?

    Ill try get some pictures tomorrow if it doesn't make sense?

    Check the offset on the wheels, the fronts maybe different to the backs. Depends by how much you mean....

    Normally on A3's/S3's the rears sit in the arches more than at the front, hence why people go for 10mm spacers on the front and 12mm or 15mm on the rear when on standard wheels.

    As said, check specs of wheels as you might just need some spacers banging on the rear.
