    Im sure ive read somewhere people space there wheels out on here?

    Il be picking my 18" genuine RSTT wheels up shortly and want them to look spot on in the arches!

    Going to either fit coilovers or eibach springs to lower.

    Just wondering what spacers if required and what make etc.

    Pic attached also, does this have spacers fitted or standard just boltedon, and anyone know what kind of lowering kit it has?

    Gaz

    All the info you need is available at the stickies mate.
    As for a quick answer, you dont need any spacers to fit the 18 rstt in an S3

    "One" of the most recommended suspension setup (not necessary the best for you but felt the best for many many S3 users on this forum):
    Bilstein's B8 sports damp's (front + rear), eibach springs (front + rear), antiroll bars (22mm front + 19 mm rear) or VW R32 antiroll bars.

    with this setup you will: lower the car (check the stickies for the dimension's but i think its 1.5"), have a more stable and steady ride around the corners while still being comfortable, and with the arb's you will limit the understeering.

    I'm running 5mm Fronts and 10mm rears on my 19x8 rims.

    You need hubcentric ones that centre themselves, and no vibrations.

    As mentioned, 5mm or 10mm up front and 15mm at the rear is pretty spot on depending on what look your going for.

    As long as you stick with good quality hubcentric spacers you'll be fine.
