    hi all,

    just bought myself some new wheels and lowering springs on the S3 but am wanting to add some spacers,

    would 15mm on the back and 10mm on the front be ok?
    do i need hubcentric spacers?
    do i need longer wheel bolts?
    can anyone recommend me some spacers?

    cheers

    15mm back and 10mm front is a popular choice....Hubcentrics are a must and save a lot of hassle, longer wheel bolts will def be requiered.

    in which case 15 front and 20 rear would be spot on i think, would fill your arches well. With that spacing you would want to get hub centric spacers. Not sure about the wheel bolts though, maybe, maybe not...??

    My rim of the tyre is very close to the arch with 20mm on et35.....you will have to get around 70mm wheel bolts for 30mm
