What Spacers??

Postby RoccoR » Tue Aug 21, 2018 2:47 pm

Hi all,

I’m going to be getting my new Scirocco R lowered soon with H & R 35mm springs as recommended and tried and tested in a friends Scirocco. I would like to add some Spacers and wondered what people would recommend?

I’ve been recommended to get Hubcentric spacers, but can anyone tell me a brand or even provide me a link to where I can purchase?

Any help appreciated :)

JJC racing spacers on mine. i tried 20mm on the rear but used to rub on the arches so id say 15 max all round.

Are you on 18s or 19s?

Hi Paradox1,

Thanks for your reply, that's very helpful. I did see JJC on ebay and wondered which ones. So reading your reply is very helpful.

I've seen that DPM do H&R's 15mm hubcentric, they are £100 a pair. Alternatively they also sell FKs for £65 a pair:

FK 15MM (30MM PER AXLE) HUBCENTRIC WHEEL SPACERS & BOLTS
Scirocco (PCD 5/112 - Centre Bore 57.1 - Bolt Thread 14x1.5)
Part Number: FK015 15Z
Width: 15mm (30mm Per Axle)
Type: Bolt Through
Note: Please check wheel hub lip length and clearance before fitting the spacers

Made of high quality aluminum
Gives your vehicle a wider and more aggressive stance
Increased stability
Correct length extended bolts included in the kit
Made in Germany
Full TUV certificate

I've got 19s on my car :)

Does anyone have a photo or link to a photo of what it may look like after having H&R 35mm springs fitted and the spacers?

I run 15mm spacers all round on mine with the H&R springs. Certainly wouldn't go any further out. I've got 19" Lugano

Hey guys,
Not been on here for a while. Just wanted to say a really big thank you for your feedback and photos. You've been very helpful. I've decided to put this on the back burner for a while or at least until my VW Warranty expires. The reason for this is that recently I had to speak with the after-sales manager at my local VW dealership and he explained that changing the springs and putting spacers on etc, would definetly invalidate the warranty. Therefore as much as I'd like to get on with a list of mods I have, I can't at the minute.

I have had cruise control and powered folding mirrors retrofitted and that's fine I've been told. I'm getting my front and rear lights tinted soon like I had done on my GTS before, obviously those cosmetic things are ok too.

Cheers

My 2011 R is lowered on H&R 35mm springs and I am running 12mm H&R spacers on the front, and 15mm H&R spacers on the back. It now has the PERFECT stance. The fronts tuck EVER SO SLIGHTLY, and the rears are perfectly flush. I wouldnt go anymore on front or rear.
