Got a set of 15mm spacers to use with my standard S3 alloys, what bolts do I need for them as there are different types for example M14x1.5 40mm long with 60' tapered. Are those ok to use or is the tapered part or length wrong


Thanks, Chris.

Have you measured the length of a standard bolt? add 15mm on and get the closest you can to that, ideally no shorter than the extra 15mm

Std wheels use radius seats mate... give Bill a bell as he sells them... I run 10mm front and 15mm rear and the bolts he sells I used uncut for the rears but had to cut 'some' off for the fronts...

Bolts are £1 each from Wheelmania, you also need to buy extended locking wheel nuts.

I've read a few posts recently where people talk of wheel spacers etc
Is this purely a cosmetic modification or will it make a difference to the handling of the car?
My wheels are the standard avus ones, what are radious seats?
Thanks

Radious seats are the angle bits on the standard bolts I think as tufty was saying, the spacers are cosmetic for me they may give better handling as the car will be 30mm wider.
