    The 20Ē R-line Suzuka wheels are pretty heavy. Personally Iíd go something different as itíll just look like youíre trying to copy an Rline without all the rest of the trims.

    Thereís some nice Audi wheels if you want to stay with OEM look.

    In terms of going from 19Ē to 20Ē there will be an increase in how firm the car rides due to less sidewall but itíll be incremental increase. The only difference is you donít have adjustment in your shocks they are fixed rate.

    Iso I was considering getting a second had RS3 or even S3 on the cheap to replace the once new Tiggy but we just had another baby and the mrs wants a new house next year so Iím being a good 30-something year old saving my pennies.

    This doesnít mean the Tiggy canít get lowered and an exhaust to complete the upgrades.

    I want to lower the car more than 1.2 just using springs. Maybe like 2 inches would be perfect for me. Any ideas who or how? Donít mine a stiffer ride as i find the tig super plush anyway.

    Why have people used spacers? Wouldnt the Suzuka's with 255 tyres fit directly onto the car as-is given its an OEM product going onto essentially the same car? Cheers

    Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Yes I want to stay with the OEM look and keep it simple - I like the look of the Suzuka's and I know how they look rather than trying to visualise what something might look and be disappointed, and not fussed what others think re 'copying'.

    You mentioned the weight and that the Suzuka's are heavy....is this a problem?

    Reason is they sit too far inside the guards for some peopleís liking. The spacers are to make the wheel more in line with the edge of the vehicle. Especially when lowered the wheels will look like theyíre disappear inside the guards.

    However they arenít legal to run in most states in Australia. You end up having to run longer wheel bolts and it increases the stresses on the bolts/hub.

    Youíre much better off getting a wheel with the correct offset to start with and this solves all fitment issues and requirements for spacers.

    The benefit of all of these is they're 239% better looking than Suzukas as well.

    I have gone for 20x9+26 AEZ Panamas and since the car is brand new I'll swap the oem tyres onto them. Will post some photos in the next few weeks.

    Shipping weight is 5kg per wheel. I'll weigh them and the Suzukas and post them here when I get them off the car.
    Look forward to seeing this - I feel like you'll end up with an OEM+ feel without actually being OEM lol.

    Suspect they've underquoted that shipping weight or it's a typo. But if you're dropping 5kg a corner I'd not want to get in a car with a driver who couldn't spot that difference..

    For whatever reason the powers that be don't like us having spacers here so as much as I would love to use them and I post a zillion pics with them used, I'm just not willing to risk voiding an insurance claim if the worst should happen. But have no issues with people who take the risk.

    They couldn't possibly weigh more than Suzukas could they?

    I think someone on here suggested 30kg for the wheel and tyre combo, tyre might be 12.5kg.. implying perhaps 17-18kg for a Suzuka.

    What color Tig do you run southtig? That blue cap might need to be changed up..
