Wheel spacer pics

Post by Foxmeister » Tue Oct 08, 2019 6:11 am

Does anybody have any pics of their car with 10mm spacers to see how it sits? Some angles would be good

Also, what spacers are best to use and where from?

You could use the search function, there have been loads of pics put up on the C5 forum. Hopefully not all of them have been done over by photofucket
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

Chunky, pretty much any forum search function is a load of pish so i never bothered with it, tried Pinterest, Google etc but theres a severe lack of decent C5 pics with info, we're being over run with these C7 beasts it seems, but i'll have a look :bigblink:

Well played sir :thumb: that looks great, and quite low, what suspension you got? Does it rub at all with the spacers?

From what i gather, 10mm is the max for the C5 but it looks like it could maybe do a bit more, wonder if 12mm would fit ok

The search function on here had always been pretty good imo.
Think you may get some rubbing with 12mm, and possibly be outside the arches. Also got to be careful with wheel bolt length.
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

Ok, i'll stick with the 10mm likely as they look fine and will just be a second set of wheels as i will be fitting the 20's soon

I did see something about the bolts, do you get replacement bolts with the spacers, no?

Not sure mate, I don't run spacers. Folk used to get them from Virdee, not sure of he still sells them.

H&R you get the bolts with them so no worries about that.

99% of the time I don't get rubbing. I do however get occasional rubs when hitting a dip in the road at speed but it appears to be more the lower edge of the wheel by the back door/sill area rather than the upper arch. Might be something to do with my camber set up.

I run KW V3 on mine, but have no idea of the settings. It was all done when I bought the car and I can see nothing in the paperwork with regard to settings other than... "Fitted"
