Hi new to the forum page,

I recently picked up a 2015 Audi A5 3.0TDI S-line. I’m gonna be installing 15mm spacers on the front and 20mm spacers on the rear. The car currently is running 20inch rims with 265/30/20 tyres.

Can anyone recommend the best lowering springs to fit to have the car With little to no wheel gap. Appreciate any help

I’m based in the UK if that makes any difference

Thanks

I've run both HR springs on 20 rims with 15 and 20 mm spacers.
The HR sports springs are low and rub over bumps.
The HR OE springs are not as low and don't rub as much.
I've gone to 19 inch wheels with HR OE springs with 15 mm spacers rear and thats a good balance of looking good and ride quality.
I would roll the arches with 20mm spacers on 20 inch wheels.
Hope that helps

Ditch the spacers and run H&R OE. or do it proper and run Air Ride so you can slam it when you want to. Lowering too much and spacing wheels from hubs is just asking for horrible ride, handling and issues with driveways, speed humps and hitting gaurds and bump stops during cornering with road bumps....unless its just a show car and not a daily driver then slam and space away.

Anytime👍
Here's a couple of pics of what H&R OE with 15mm spacers on 19 inch 9j rims look like.
The ET is 32 so the true ET with the spacers 17 View attachment 181470
My et is ET29 would 15mm spacers all round still be ok, I was thinking to do 15mm front and 20mm in the rear
