    Hi there!

    I have an 8l s3 with standard 17" avus wheels. Was looking for 10mm front and 15mm rear? What are your views on that and how much?

    Many thanks

    the lower limit of your offset tolerance is ET30.
    if the offset on your rims is ET42 or hiher the a 10mm spacer will work.
    i dont know of a 15mm spacer coz that sounds like an over kill and you need to run 215 45 17 tyres.
    i stand to be corrected.

    Morning,

    You should be fine with that, I ran 20mm rear and 10mm front before changing to bigger wheels.

    Just make sure they're hubcentric spacers.

    Sorry I can't help with the offset etc..

    I've bought the RSTT's for my S3 and they're 225/40/18. Could I get a price for some 10 fronts and 15 rears please? Hubcentric is a must :)

    Morning,

    All 10mm and above spacers we do are hubcentric and can all be found here - VAG 5/100 57.1 : The premier online mail order VAG suspension and performance specialists. We offer a wide range of all the best branded suspension and performance parts for all VAG vehicles at the best possible prices.

    The H&R and FK are listed with bolts but can get bolts for the Forge and Eibach seperately if needed.

    The H&R are better quality in terms of materials used and the finish on them.
