    Hi All

    I have bought some alloys which are the s3 facelift, I believe they also do these for a TT which I think I may have hence the issues fitting, the back 2 are on fine but the front 2 are rubbing so I will need spacers, can you guys advise of the best spacers, what size would be best to get and also where to get them from,

    The alloys are 225 40 R18

    Thanks in advanced

    Do you mean they are rubbing on the inside?

    We sell TPI spacers & bolts that are great value but could do with pics and details of the problem before recommending a size.

    What size are the alloys? 225 40 18 is the tyre size!

    They must be 18 x 8J or 8.5J - std S3 alloys are 7.5J, TTS rims are 8J.
