    I've got some S4 wheels for my a4 tdi,they have an Et45 so was wondering what size spacers I should get for back and front as I think they sit in the arches to much.what offset are the on a a S4 as I know they sit out further because the discs are wider.

    Will that give the same stance as an S4 as I don't want them to stick out to far.

    The S4's and the A4's stance is the same I believe and my wheels are et45

    This is mine before with no spacers which should be the same stance as yours now

    And then here is the other side with the 15mm spacers fitted

    You can just about see the fronts as well in the pictures. I did one side at a time. I've actually got 8mm on the front but I regret not going for the 10mm as it would have filled the arches better

    I've only ever tried H&R hubcemetric and never had any problems with them. Make sure you get longer bolts too

    ET30 is quite a offset!

    Do you not think they stick out to far from the arches at the front with a et30?

    ET45 plus a 10mm spacer on the front is ET35 ;)

    30's ok at the back, too much at the front hence the narrower spacer.

    So what you think then 10mm or 15mm on rear what do you recommend on the front.

    'Personally', I'd aim for ET35 on the front, anymore and the wheels would stick out too much for my liking. ET30-32 would be about right for the rear I think.
