Is anyone running spacers with their stock 18" s line wheels?

Looking to put 15mm on mine but would like to see some pics first.

Not yet but might be in a week or so as I am currently running bbs 18 inch wheels with an offset of et50, so have 15mm on front and 20mm rear, wheels fill arches perfectly.
Stock 18 s line wheels will have winter tyres on and might try spacers, however offset is different so might stick out abit.

Most VAG require the spacers to be 5 mm more on the rear to even out.

Get 1 set of 15 mm and fit them front and rear to one side .

Drive around the block and look down the side to decide .

Great, would love to see them.

Thanks for that. Maybe 10mm at the front and 15mm at the back could be an option.

When fitting the spacers to the 18" S line wheels, would I need any spigot rings or should they go straight on?

That's exactly what I've got fitted on my B8 Avant, pics in my Project Thread 'The Avant Project- A Work in Progress'

I purchased H&R spacers as they are car specific. Fronts when Eurocarparts had a sale on.

I'm running 12mm front & 15mm rear on my avant & it fills the arches nicely. Also any spacers over 10mm should be hubcentric.
