    Hello mate, I've just been reading all of your notes on wheel spacers and wondered if you could offer an opinion on my problem.

    I'm looking to get the widest possible spacers to fit my S3 8l which is sitting on original 17'' Avus wheels and factory springs.

    I've noticed that you've suggested 10mm front, 12mm rear... Is this specific to the guy with 18" wheels?

    Any advice at all would be much appreciated. Thanks, Dan.

    I love the set up, just got to be a bit careful if ive got 'heavy' passengers on speed bumps as it catchs.
    The stance is bang on as well, those pics don't show it but looks very mean. Will try and get some better ones but I'm confined to bed atm.
    The springs are a 25mm drop as the car is an S3.

    Ahh didn't think there were rubbing issues with the 12mm but I guess as you said it is only when people in te back!
