    Am i right in thinking that 5mm hub spacers wont be hubsentric, becase there is still a visable part of the bit that sticks out for the wheel to sit on?

    Yea the 5mm ones you have to just line up with the holes basically. I've got 5mm all round wish i had got 10mm though.

    Nice wheels! I run them, in 19s, mine were et50 so I needed 15mm spacers to clear suspension and brakes.

    Think hubcentric spacers start around the 15mm mark :( I have 25 and 35mm H&R on mine and they were hubcentric... Only real way of making non hubcentric spacers fit is to lightly smear some silicone or contact adheasive to the spacer and stick it to the discs, that way you wont be forever lining the spacers up when you tit the wheel back on :)

    Hubcentric starts at 10mm guys as I had them on my S3 & had option for them on my S4, best guy I know for them was PCS on fleabay.

    http://stores.ebay.co.uk/performance-car-shop

    Just ring him for a deal & also different sizes as he doesnt have all he can get on fleabay, he can get most sizes you want & they are bloody good quality & very well made.
