    Hey Guys,

    Wanted to get some advice and possible pictures of people who have already done this.

    I have an Audi S3 8v 2015 with 19" all stock and wanted push my tires out a bit more to give it a more aggressive stance :D. Wondering what would be the best option??

    Below is the pic of my car (Pic credit goes to DJalix)

    I have spacers, 15mm front and 20mm rear and that totally fills the arches, could not go any wider.

    No problems with 15mm front and 20mm rear? I have thought that 10mm front and 15mm rear are the maximum

    I had 15mm all round on my PFL, just waiting this flu to go before I fit them to my FL. Had zero issues while they were on.

    Paul with the 20mm at the back and being staggered did you need realignment for your wheels?

    What are the pros and cons in a staggered setup?

    Alex those do look a lot more aggressive than stock...very nice indeed.

    10mm/155mm use to be our most popular combo for the S3 8V but it's by far 15mm/20mm now.

    Any issues with the staggered setup? Does it require realignment?

    Looks fairly generic which is not an issue. As long as they are hub centric, sit flat and all bolts can torque up to 120nm then all should be good I believe.

    I guess that depends on how fussy you are as a person on aesthetics. :D

    For me H&R are the best choice on the market for spacers.

    If you put on these spacers and have a puncture, do you need to remove them to fit the space saver wheel? Asking as my brother had a similar arrangement on his Fiat Uno and when he had a puncture he had to remove the spacer, which in some cases was a pain ....

    Sorry about digging up an old thread... But for those who fitted 10/15 or 15/20, any noticeable increase in understeering? Am considering, but just the thought of more understeering is turning me away... Thanks!

    Other than for aesthetics what purpose does these spacers serve?
    Just trying to see if it improves handling or upsets it as you are increasing the track which in theory could help handling or understeer but like all tweaks something else has to give.
