    Hi, as per title I would like to bring the wheels out inline with the arches, so what size do people go for and as the car wont be lowered on different springs will it look ok?

    Depends if you’re lowering it and if your running standard wheels and what tyres. The Michelin PS4S 235/35 R19 look a but more chunky or square a tyre compared to the Contis it came with.

    With my carbon wheels ET50 and on Eibach Sportlines 10mm front and rear rub.

    Front rubs on big dips on the inner arch liner just where the arch and bumper meet (you’ll feel a bulge in the arch liner where a nut sits behind)

    That’s even with -2.5 degrees of camber that I have on the front and the plastic lip removed.

    Rear rubs on the plastic lip, but I think without it 10mm would be fine. I’ve just not got round to getting some more 10mm spacers for the rear.

    No I wont lower this car, as my drive way is at a sharp angle and my other lowered cars scrap if I go more than 1mph. So just looking for wheel spacer sizes on a standard car, but only if car looks good on standard springs

    Not yet - he’s thinking of getting them.

    I would get them but I’m pretty sure my car is too low

    @PP Gareth should be able to help you with the VAGSport spacers :)

    @paul7619,no mate car is not lowered but with the spacers it sort of looks it’s been lowered as the wheels are closer to the arch.[​IMG][​IMG]

    @paul7619,to be honest a res delete did not really do much on my 2017 St300 because of the massive silencer each side of the exit pipe. So i got a 3” cat back system from a German company and that with the res delete sounds awesome.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looking good. With those rs6 style tail pipes, do they fit with the normal rear diffuser?

    @paul7619,no they did not that’s why I got the Rieger rear diffuser as I already had the Rieger front splitter.

    These are PS4s, right? Been hearing so much about them but this non-existent rim protection is an absolute deal braker. It's crazy how they manage such high scores and great reviews when missing such a feature.

    @Deano j1971 has black Alloygators fitted which is why it looks like the tyre shows there is no rim protection.

    The PS4S tyres on my CUPRA do extend quite a bit outside the wheel and will offer some protection[​IMG]. Myself and @Jimbobcook had exactly that conversation at the meet we had at Doncaster at the weekend.

    OK that makes more sense. Didn't know of the Alloygators existence. Still the rim protection of the PS4s is inferior to that of the PZ4.

    @Stefan147, the Alloygator rim protectors are the best piece of kit you can get for your wheels,they come in different colours and sizes and have saved my wheels from being curbed many times. As you probably know you can only get diamond cut alloys refurbed 3 times, I would of needed two new sets of alloys by now lol.[​IMG]
