    Hi guys!

    Just after what "mm" people have installed wheel spacer wise to the rear of the 8p without it rubbing...
    And I'm on coilovers.

    I've seen somewhere 10mm are good.

    I also think I need different "mm" on the front currently 20mm with RS3 wings but I can just about see the tyre looking down now the coilovers are on and I've heard them catch.

    What’s the ET of your alloys?

    If stock then 10 all round to be safe. I was running 12mm rear and it would rub and 12mm front started looking like a roller skate.

    Good point they aren't the originals
    235/35R19 Audi rotas are what I have on

    I've seen 10mm ones on your website... reckon they will be OK?
    Whats the easiest way to work out the offset?

    Check your current offset and then add 10mm to it!!

    The offset of your wheels should be stamped on the inside of the rim.

    Finally got round to it, ET 45 looks like it says, bit faint

    ET45 is fine - you shouldn’t need spacers at all.

    If you are running RS3 front wings then you could go 10mm which would give an effective ET of 35.
