10mm Front and 15mm Rear for me but like everyone else, this is dependant on price.
I too was just going with what seems the popular choice, but if 13 and 20 is possible then i'll go for those, i suppose it depends on which is the majority winner really
I had some 20mm spacers on the rear of mine, but because I'd lowered it and not had adjustable tie-bars, the camber was greatly exaggerated and one of them cracked around the hub-centric bit. I took them off when I fitted the tie-bars and haven't got around to having them fixed.
Here's a few pics of hoggys car with 13/20mm
http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showth...-spacer&highlight=Spacers standard suspension
he is on standard suspension but has rstt wheels. Vorhees does mention that he has 10/15mm and has slight rubbing on full lock but he is running lower than standard so I suppose 10/15mm is probably better if you've got non standard suspension.
Ive got 20mm wheel spacers all round with 35mm lowering springs and it looks the nuts and havent had any rubbing what so ever, even cornering hard with 5 people in the car.
Lemon have you got any pics? 20mm up front. Must look a bit too much I'd have thought!
Didn't have any so went outside n took some, not very good as it's dark
Thanks mate that looks good. The very edge of the fronts are just hanging out, have you noticed any stone chips up the side of your car fro. Them?
Because vehicles are designed to have the bearing in the center of the wheel, by offsetting the wheel out 20mm it may look pretty but it will **** the bearing in time and i cant see you all having the gear to renew S3 rears? Max i'd go is 15, but then i have the eqpt to fit new. Any ideas on prices yet?
what equipment are you talking about.... the press to push the bearings out.....
No. the hydraulic puller to pull the bearings out, bugger removing the rear arm to put it on a press.
I would deffo be interested but would require some adv on how much I could space my wheels out (without the risk of catching the arches) car has 19" wheels with 235-35-19 tyres, cars not been lowered.
I did both my rear bearings this way...what a pig of a job.
Pah. I'll worry about my barings if they start to pack In.
Me three! Im prepared to sacrafice a bit of time n money replacing bearings to get the look I want.
me four..... im sure i can pay someone 2 hours labour to do the job for me
I would take a pair of 15mm, no bolts needed, if the price is good.
Any luck with prices etc?
id also has a pair of 15s and a pair of 10s depending on price...?
ye i would like 10mm front and 15mm rear. but like everyone else if the price is right
any word on these Paul..... just im seriously considering the PW motorsport £100 all in option
i just got some black anodised 15mm hubcentric spacers for £35 and 10 longer bolts for £14.95. helps to look around
where from Gez.........
You keep missing these deals dont you Tim
yeah cos i cant be arsed to search....and bcos i havent got time
Oh right, but you've got time to post 100 times a day on here
oh your a cheeky sort aren't ya
well yeah, my lunch is between 12 and 2 and its easier to post than search the web waiting for these big websites to load up all their impressive graphics..... plus the only website i cant access @ work is ebay - and so I use you lot as my purchasing tools - hows that make you feel?
I need some spacers bad, my lm reps are hiding under the arches
where the hell do you buy longer locking nuts..... and what size are they as standard? research looks like the PW ones are the cheapest anodised around with bolts included..... just need to factor in some locking nuts to see overall price....
you need, 14x1.5 bolts with a 17mm head 42mm long for 15mm spacers
