    Hi I'm after getting wheel spacers for my 2007 s3 to make it look a bit wider and meaner. I've got the standard 18" wheels painted gloss black. What mm would be best and anyone on here got them fitted with pics? I know some come with new longer bolts but I guess they don't come with a locking wheel nut?

    Cheers

    What widths do people normally go for in the S3 and stock 18s? My 18s will be on for a while now and I am considering spacers!

    10 front 15 rear?

    I have all round 11mm on mine with standard wheels which fills the arches nicely in conjunction with the lowering springs, can get photos if you can wait till mid june! Graeme at GNJ sorted them out for me along with extended bolts and 4 x extended locking bolts

    10mm front and 12mm rear is pretty much the norm but this can give ever so slight rubbing at the rear if fully loaded.

    The spacers don't come with locking wheel nuts but these are available from McGard.

    Any info or prices just give me a shout.

    I'm using 12 mm front and 15 mm rears. Looks loads better.

    Personally I'm going 10mm all around just to be safe.

    I've got 10mm on the rears and I don't think it's enough. Bought 12mm but with the snow they haven't been fitted yet.
