Hey all. Im driving down to liverpool tonite to pick up some 19" lambo gallardo replicas.... just wunded if there goin to fit over my porsche gt3 front callipers?? ive got 10mm spacers front and the avus wheels clear fine (the gallardo spokes look fairly flat) also got some 5mm spacers to stick on the front aswell as the 10s just in case. Oh and the wheels are et35 offset!!!

Whats peoples opinions of them??? was thinking of powdercoating them grey (on my black s3) similar to this::

cheers mate. I cant see me needing them but ive tried alsorts of wheels on. I tried the TT 240 quattro sport wheels on (quite a curved spoke) and some replica rs4 (which i though were fairly flat but had chunky spokes so touched the caliper even with the 10mm spacer) fingers crossed for the lambos!!!! lol

i bit of advise if you put spacers on these lambo wheels it makes the steering shake i had this problem wiv mine cause the centre hub on a lambo has a slight canver so when i put the spacers on mine it didn't meet the hub properly the only way you'll get away with spacers are if hubcentric ones and i was told 15mm was the smallest size availible.

Its a damn good job mine are hubcentric then :) lol. I have 15mm on the rear (5mm flat spacer on first with a 10mm hubcentric in front of it with longer bolts and is spot on!!! so prob gunna do that with the fronts if i have to!!!

Not hub centric then if the 5mm flat spacer is against the hub first...
Id ditch the 5mm flat spacers, had them on my old S3 and theyre total *****, gave me vibrations and all sorts. Bought proper H&R hubcentric ones in the end, perfect.

Not my cup of tea mate but it looks very clean

Keep a close eye on the wheel bearings with those spacers and wheels that bit, puts alot of excess pressure on them, especially if you hammer it around corners!

just ordered some genuine audi centre caps as those on look pretty tacky that are on!!

I no suspension has been done a trillion times!!!! im thinking of just putting some -25mm H&R springs on for the time been then possibly do shocks / arb etc later just so it sits better..... i dont really boot it round corners so will it be ok with just springs for now???
