    Hello,

    I have searched the forum and haven't found an answer for this:

    I have a B7 A4 3.0 TDi with the standard 8J x 18 ET43 wheels.

    The rear wheels look more tucked in than the front ones.

    I measured how far the top of the rim sits back from the arch at the same height.

    For the front wheels it's 2mm back and for the rear wheels it's 17mm back!

    So I'd need 2mm spacers at the front and 17mm at the back to make them 'even'.

    Reading the threads it looks like you tend to put 10mm thicker ones at the back and it seems to me that 15mm thicker ones would suit better.

    So maybe 20mm at the back and 5mm at the front.

    Has anyone done this and how does it look?

    Cheers!
    Dan

    I think a lot of people go for 15mm all round from what I've seen, personally I'm going 20 back 15 fronts
