Default Which Wheel Spacer + ET48 Wheel + 225/40/18 = No Rub?

Can any of you 2.0 A3 owners recommend a size for wheel spacers to use with my 18" ET48 offset rims? I have 225/40 rubber on there and am concerned about rubbing. Riding on aftermarket H&R Sport Springs (1.3" drop F/R, from stock non-sport suspension).

Thanks in advance.

depends, so you want your wheels flush to the fender? or just nicely tucked right inside? is there a gap between the top of the tire to the wheel well?

I'm not sure that you'll need spacers. I think it depends a lot more on your drop considering you are using the stock 225 width and the stock offset.

Cheers!

Yeah that makes sense Chef. I'll drop it and reassess then.
