    been looking at my S3 since i fitted the new rims, the new wheels have a higher offset then the orignal ones - think the new ones are et40, this has brought the wheels in a tad so im thinking i may need to get some hub centric spacers...i was just wondering what width you boys have gone for or what you suggest?

    i was thinking 10 or 15mm all round?

    your best off with anodised if you can as the other items tend to pitta over time and look absolute gash...hence why the H&R items are so popular

    Agreed. It also means the wheel bolts will be of good quality, not the ***** that I bought off eBay that sheared off inside the hub :(

    The first link is a great price as well, but not sure I'd want such large ones. Might have a hunt around for a similar package but 15/10mm.

    With that ET I'd say 10mm/15mm front and 20mm/25mm rear depending on what look your going for.

    i was thinking about split sized spacers but was worried about upsetting handling with different sized spacers??

    I've got 20mm on the rear and 15mm on the front. I'm going to push for more on the rear though as it could do with it and just slightly more on the front.

    ive had a quick check of the new rims ive got...im now thinking they are et 35 do you think 15mm spacers on the front will be ok??

    i had a quick measure up and i seem to have 16-20mm of space between the rim and the arch - so in my humble opinion it should be fine, however if any of you have any thoughts i would like to hear them :)

    I think they're from Damien @ DPM (see post no 8!). They look quite good.

    I've got H&Rs 10mm + 15mm on mine fitted by TT Shop and they're excellent
