    So I go to fit my new 19" BBS CH's this weekend and I find they're totally the wrong offset, they're et50, balls. So I'm looking for some spacers, H&R seem the way to go, after trial fitting a couple of different thickness mock ups I'm gonna need a least 15mm, I think! However they sell 20mm bolt on hubsentric adaptors, gonna be cheaper than buying spacers and extended bolts.

    Are 20mm spacers gonna be too big on my S4, anyone have any idea? Come up against the same problem?

    I'd get the right offset, especially on an s4. your putting a lot of extra strain on the wheel adapters/spacers etc.

    Will spacers really put that much extra stress on the hubs? I'm only using them to correct the offset, if I bought the right offset they'd sit in the same place as these will plus i shall buy decent alloy ones, H&R or Eibach, that won't way very much at all, plus 19" CH's are lighter than standard wheels anyway, by 1kg each corner, spacers won't weigh that much.

    I thought you meant adapters, if they are just normal spacers, it wont really affect it. Although if they were offset adapters to fit wheels for another vehicle, your relying on bolts to hold the wheel to the adapter, then bolts to hold the adapter to the hub. Dodgy IMO lol i could be wrong though!

    H&R adaptors are fantastic quality and if they can get TUV approval from the guys in Germany then they must be good enough !!

    I have FK Spacers on my Superb at both 15 and 20mm sizes and have never had any problems.

    Can anyone tell me if it's possible to source 'hubcentric' 5 or 10mm spacers for the A4 (same PCD for the Superb)?
