Spacers

Let's try generate some chat in this RS3 forum to ease the wait lol.

An essential modification to any car I've had is spacers, for my last two S3s I've run 15mm front and 20mm on the rear. Obviously with the RS3 the wheels have a staggered stance and believe the fronts are wider than the rears. What sizes would you recommend for a setup like this? I like a little bit of wheel poke but nothing too much. Pic of my S3 for reference with 20mm on the rear.

that is a stunning angle :icon thumright:
Anyone who says the saloon is not a great looking car perhaps needs to check out spec savers ;)
That really is a cracking photo !
you know I was stood yesterday in our yard, and the way the light was bouncing off it made it looks seriously aggressive. It was hitting every fold and really exaggerated the arches. Photo quality is crap but you get the idea.

Is there any info on what offset the new wheels will
Be?

They all seem to have the same width for each of the 3 trim levels but cannot see an offset quoted….?

I have some bbs ch127 (19x 8.5j et48) that I’m hoping to fit on my rs3 when it comes but I will be losing a bit of tyre up front so not sure if I will have to sit sell them and get a new set…

We just need some more info on wheel specs to be able to start thinking of wheel / spacer specs etc.
