Default Just fitted 15mm spacers on the S8

Just fitted my 15mm spacers on the S8, it’s made such a difference, never really liked all that extra space in the arch.

Looks great fella, what type did you fit?

We have similar spec cars, great to see another one being well cared for

Just some hubcentric eBay jobbies, think I paid £99 for 4 inc longer bolts, just need to find some longer (suitable) lockable nuts now

Any chance of full car shots with spacers. Also how safe are they and do you get any wobble or other steering issues? Cheers

They are hub centric so they mount on the wheel hub and the wheel mounts on top, there’s no difference when driving really.

Awesome, upload some pictures when they’re fitted, it makes the car look much more “Modern” in my opinion
