    Hey all. Been struggling recently to find a wheel that will fit over a set of porsche gt3 front calpers with 10mm spacers. currently running 17" avus wheels and fit with a few mm to spare.... the standard wheels are pretty flat faced.... tried the tt 240 quattros / rs4's and no luck... any ideas???? + dont wanna spend loads and wanting either an 18 / 19

    I think ChriS3 had those calipers on his old S3, he ran them with 18" BBS CH's and 19" MTM Bimotos, both with spacers I think.

    Shouldnt need too much to clear them id have thought 10mm would be plenty!
    Im running porsche brakes with Replica RS4s with no spacers, theyre close but they clear the calipers just fine

    i have to use 15mm spacers with my rs4 reps giving me 1mm at the most of clearance to the caliper

    cheers guys. I bought some rs4 reps but think the arms were chunkier than the genuine ones. Ive got 10mm spacers up front and they were no where near fitting. I was thinking about porsche turbo wheels as there pretty flat faced (good thinkin grathies) dont really wanna shell out for the mtms, would rather the ch's. lol. think that sums it up then. thanx again!!!

    dont forget to leave a gap in front of the caliper to get the wheel brush in, you dont want to have to take each wheel off to clean;)

    Also, what ET of wheel are you looking at? As thats gonna have a BIG bearing on what you can fit also

    Good find AKY. Just emailed him about them. theyll be 255 wide im guessing so ill have no chance fitting. plus wrong pcd and offset :( the standard wheels are et32 i believe. If i were to buy a replica wheel etc.... the offsets come as low as 35 i think. Bummer! and as it is now i can hardly get the wheel brush round the caliper so bits of my wheels stay dirty :(
