I think a few of the SS+ suspension guys run 8mm all around to ensure there is no rubbing at the rear, but as per AdrianD's thread I posted above he's also running the 8mm F, 10mm R combo.

Think Sam might run spacers and has SS+ so may be able to confirm his set up too.

Spot on Marc :thumbs:

Yes, I have run 8mm front and 10m rear spacers this summer with SS+ suspension. The rears have rubbed a few times, mainly on fast B-roads where larger compression happens and over big speed bumps. I will be changing the rear 10's to 8mm and hopefully solve the issue.

Yeah i think tyres play a part of it as well... since changing to Goodyears I do now get the occasional rub... but it's not enough for me to change to 8pm as it's so rare...

Yep 5 x 112. I'd recommend buying from Virdee the forum sponsor. If you ring him, tell him you've got a b7 rs4 with SS+ suspension he'll make sure you get the right kit. Saves on aggro later buying inferior stuff or even other quality branded stuff that has still caused many forum members headaches.

+1, many have tried to source from elsewhere and end up here with spacers that are i'll fitting or vibrate etc. Stick with Virdee or Revolution, they both know the car well and know the right type of spacers to supply you.
