    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 :think:

    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.

    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!

    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?

    No. the hydraulic puller to pull the bearings out, bugger removing the rear arm to put it on a press.

    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....
