Wheel Spacer/ ET change

Hi guys

had to used some 10mm wheel spacers to make my standard S3 wheels fit over my 4 pots but I don’t like these spacers and keep worrying about my wheels falling off haha

would anyone know what Offset/Et wheels I would need to buy to get rid of the spacers?

would S4 wheels work as they are 8j et47 where the S3 wheels are 7.5j et54??

Any help much appreciated

The lower the offset the more the wheel sticks out the arch. So a wheel with et44 would have the same offset as the S3 wheel and 10mm spacer.

Spacers are fine if they're hubcentric and you fit longer wheel bolts.

Takes me back to when I fitted Nimrods from a 206 to my 106 GTi.

Without spacers your best option is aftermarket alloys. You need something where the spoke voices out like the Oz Ultraleggera or Team Dynamics - both ET45.

The A5/S5 Rotors may work but they have a wide offset and are 19’s

Other than that, not many options unfortunately.

A4 Dtm alloys fit perfectly as there CB 57.1 plus Et is 44 , which brings the alloy out to sit flush with the wheel arch

Cool cheers for the help Guys I’m on the case. Other wheels I though of what about TTS or S4 alloys as they are the same style as the S3 wheels to keep it original?

Anything 5x112pcd Et54 to 44, centre bore 57.1 should be fine as S3's are that pattern ao many vag car wheels out there .
