View Full Version : Wheel spacer question - B5 A4QM non-sport

03-17-2008, 03:23 PM
Hey guys - just wondering if anyone can help me out on which wheel spacers I'm going to need? I have a '96 A4QM without sport suspension and I just picked up some 17" Ronal S4 rims with a 45mm off-set and 235/45/17 tires. My original rim/tire combo (and current winter set-up) is a 35mm off-set with 205/55/16.

Now, common sense would say I need 10mm spacers, but the added tire width makes me think I might need 15mm spacers for the tire to clear the spindle? However I don't want the tires to rub the fenders with a full cabin either. I really don't want to have to buy one set of spacers, install them and then find out I need different ones. Let me know if anyone has this set-up, or can shed any light on the subject. Thanks in advance.
