    Any problem with spacing out the back wheels and not the front ? I'm old school and think like most fast things they should be fat at the back and thin at the front.............unless its a woman of course :)

    I wouldn't think so depending on how far out your spacing them, I mean plenty of people run 20mm daily and have no issues! I'm putting 12mm on the rear of mine but will get tracking, toe etc done when their on to save uneven tyre wear etc

    id be careful with BBS Pescaras, are they the same ET as BBS CH's? as S3RYE has put 10mm spacers with his CH's and is getting rubbing on the back

    12 mm on standard wheels will be fine, think you can go upto 15 on most audi made wheels without issues, im running 10&12 f&r on mine without issues and mine has a 25mm drop
