    I'm running OE 19" and 255/35 tyres on my B8 with OE sport suspension.
    I have no intention of going lower, but I'm considering spacers to get the wheels to sit more flush with the body.

    What are the suggestions for front rear?
    I've heard 10mm front and 15mm rear will work, or is that too much?

    You cant get hubcentric in 10mm and i dont like the idea of just using shims upfront, ive gone 15mm all round but only running a 225 35 19 upfront and 245 rear, sits really nice now though.

    That's news to me.

    Been doing some more reading over at Audizine, and think I'll go 10/12.

    Cant say what size to get for your car but you can definitely get 10mm hubcentrics, i have them on each corner! I also ran non-hubcentric H&R 5mm spacers on my old S3 with absolutely no issues.

    5 mm shims are fine on the front... But hubcentric spacers deffo for the rear.. 5mm front and 10mm back is perfect.

    Hubcentric are available in 10mm and I'd say you're looking at the right sizes in 10mm and 15mm.
