    Have any of you put wheel spacers on your B8?
    Just wondered which would be the best size to get front & rear for the stock 18" s line alloys.
    5mm front & 10mm back maybe?

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    Any advice on which make to go for?
    Do they need to have a raised inner edge?

    If set on spacers, then I'd advise hub centric spacers as they are more safer and general rule of thumb is to go 5mm more on front to eliminate under steer.
    Unless your not bothered about above and it's just looks your after.

    Thanks.
    15mm on the back it is then.
    Would 20mm on front be too much?

    That's reassuring.
    One last question before I leave you in peace. Have you gone for 60mm bolts?

    Don't think you would notice tbh on use of car, daily/family car won't get pushed as much (more noticeable on track cars etc)
