Default How do I get tires flush with fenders

Hi all

Just got my precious S4 last month and the time to mod and personalize her has come. I plan to get some new wheels and tires first. I have no intention of lowering her. I looked on several forums and googled a bit and found that the jury is still out on the use of wheel spacers. Seems to be a lot of opinion on the pros and cons but no hard evidence. Having just dropped 20k I am hesitant to put on anything that might harm my car. This leaves me with just the wheels option. When I get new wheels do I just go from a 8 wide to a 8.5 or 9? To flush things up? Will going to a wider wheel do anything negative?

If you're planning on new wheels, talk to a shop that REALLY knows their job. You could most likely fit a 9 inch wheel in there and get them flush without spacers, but it all depends on the offset. I don't know the numbers, but a knowledgable wheel shop could tell you. Just don't try to stagger the back wheels. With quattro, the wheels and tires need to stay the say size.

Like stated above the width of the wheel isn't what makes the wheels sit flush, offset does. What year is your car?
