    While I am extremely pleased with the look of the H&R +15mm Spacers on the rear, I have noticed some rubbing on very bumpy/uneven roads, and when I had 3 people in the back.

    Other than taking them off, what other things can I try to stop the rubbing?

    Has anyone got the +10mm Spacers on the rear, is there any rubbing?

    Cheers K

    What size wheels and tyres you got, and what is the offset of your alloys?

    Also, tell the 3 people in the back to go on diets, or make them walk.

    Klauster I have 10mm on the rear of my S3 and there is no rubbing however no one been in the back yet!

    I'm just waiting for my 15mm spacers to arrive and they are going on the back and the 10mm ones on the front.

    I only ever have a max of 2 people in the back very rarely so hopefully I wont get any rubbing issues. Was it just when the rear of the car was full and not when it was empty?

    Ordered them already mate!

    If I get the rubbing then may have to put them on the front and keep the 10mm on the rear!!
