    I've just lowered the car 30mm on apex springs and the 17 Avus wheels are lost in the arches.

    Im thinking 25mm f 20mm r does that seem ok?

    Do I go for a kit with extended bolts or bolt on?
    if I get the ones with the extended bolts do I need radius or tapered headed bolts?

    Thanks in advance

    Usually most people would go for bigger spacers at the rear, something like 20/25mm rear and 15/20mm front.

    15mm and under will be bolts through, 20mm and over will be bolt on.

    Let me know if you need any info or prices.
