    Peeps,

    I need some advise please. I have searched and read older posts until my eyes were bleeding last night and I am even more confused than ever.

    My new wheels have arrived this morning and I was trying to asertain if I need/require spacers to fill out the arches of my S3.

    The wheels are 18x8 BBS CH's with 225/40/18 GY F1's.

    Any help would be welcome.

    you wont need them unless you have big caliper but you might want them to get the wheel near the edge of the arch for a better look. most peep go for 10 front 15 rear i think but with ET35 you can just go 20 front not sure how far you can go on the rear but deffo 20's maybe more

    depends how low you intend to go
    this will also determine what size spacers you will need without having rubbing issuses etc
    you will be able to see,the minute you fit them to be honest

    But you wouldnt be able to take them back once opened so kinda defeats the object.
