    It's always best to stick with hubentric.

    All the H&R spacers are hubcentric but only 10mm and above have the collars that locate the wheel, personally if possible I'd always stick with 10mm and above.

    What do you mean by "spacers - 10mm, 20mm per axle" ?

    Also what mm would you recommend to push out a3 wheels till they sit flush with the arches?

    One pair of 10mm spacers (one for the left wheel, one for the right wheel) would increase the track by a total of 20mm on whichever axle you put them on, front or back.

    I use 10mm spacers on the front and 15mm on the back.

    10mm each side which is 20mm on the axle.

    What wheels do you have on and is the car lowered?

    Pirelli P6000 tyres, 225/ 45/ R17 91 Y,- SIZE AND SPEED RATING

    I want the car lowered at least 30mm, but I also need appropriate shocks also. Which can you recommend that you sell?
