Basic question: does the "brake package" installed change/determine the inside diameter of the spacer? Would the hub size change? I have "factory" with red calipers on a 2015 RS5 - my guy ordered a set and now I am told that the ID has to be machined out to 66mm from 57mm. I'm calling BS, but what the hell do I know?

Help a brother out here with a little knowledge - later.

I went with the aggressive 10mm rear 15mm front hub centric from ECS for my 2014 RS5 no issues ... no pizza slicer look anymore ,no rub , no vibrations ..good luck

57.1 is the old VW/ Audi hub size, they bought you the wrong spacers. 66.1 is the modern hub size. It's probably cheaper to just buy new spacers than to have them machined.

your guy ordered a set with a 57.1 mm centerbore and what you needed was a 66.6 mm centerbore,

he should have checked before ordering
