Audi S5 b9 coupe - Wheel spacers

Post by blacky010_10_s5 » Sun Sep 09, 2018 5:08 pm

Hi all

A neighbour of mine recommended I join the forum for some advice. As per the title, I own a 2017 s5 coupe and an in the process of wanting to lower it and widen the track a little bit. I wanted to go maybe 15/20 on the back and 12/15 front. Does anyone have any experience with such changes or alternative suggestions? Stock 19” wheels.

I was planning on H&R spacers and have 20mm eibach springs ready to go on.

Thanks, Mark

Welcome. Not many S5 owners in this forum though.

In fact we don't even have a forum for the new S5 yet.

Ha ha, good spot, that’s the worst one and I’ve done 17k now so needs replacing...

What are you saying Eddie? He's driven it hard and worn the edge of his tyres?

Now that Eddie has made me look harder I can see you really do need some spacers on those rear wheels!
