Stock lci with 12.5mm rear spacers

Got these put on today, i think it gives the car a nicer stagger than stock.
(note- the rear wheel is so clean b/c it was just refinished)









& would you guys believe i used to have tints, but due me getting pulled over 24/7 i now have the fishbowl look again
also had different wheels

I went with 12's on the stock 189's too. Flushes out good. Front could probably use 5mm, but I want hubcentric. Car seems to pull a little to the left - wonder if it has to do with the rear spacers (summer wheels have no pulling, so it is not an alignment issue)?

yeh, i feel the same way about the front with the 5mm / hubcentric issue.

Not quite sure about your pulling problem, seems like you answered it yourself by saying it doesn't pull if the summers are on- which means the other tires are the problem.

But it pull to a side a little more than likely is an alignment issue, reminding me that my car has been pulling to my left for past 3 months and def time to get her re-alignmed. I honestly suspect the terrible roads here in NYC to throwing off my alignment.


And btw.. i was on audizine too, miss that whole VAG community thing and my b6.

12 looks good ... I used 15s all round on mine with the 193 rims, it's a little naff. Looks kinda like a rally car now. Am gonna swap to front 10mm and rear 12mm later on today or tomorrow.

i used 5mm in the front only because my spacers have silver bolts. in reality you dont even notice 5mm, i was just very careful to tighten the bolts evenly. i had mine laying around from my previous e90, if i were to buy them for stock wheels i would have bought 15mm for the rear. although i am curious to see what it would look like with 20mm rear and 12.5mm in the front.

I remember your name from Audizine. My winter car / daily driver is an A4 Ultrasport avant - ocean blue too.

I don't think it is alignment related because the other set of wheels/tires track perfectly straight. I'm just not sure if it is a balance issue on the tires? Wheels have no bends and are very clean.

Glad you like your setup!

did you ever do this? if so can you post pics?

Been desperately searching around for 10mm front and 12mm on the rear of an e90 LCI sedan...

Thanks!
