Hey all:

I am midway through my B5 wagon's wheel upgrade. I have 18x8.5 ET45 fifteen52 Tarmacs with Contintenal DWS 215-40-18 tires on them and am now purchasing spacers and new lug bolts to pop them on.

I've found that Achtuning sells H&R spacers for a bit less than ECS and plan to get 10mm and 15mm for the front and back, respectively. Achtuning has a few different listings for these however, with the only difference being in hub height (listed under "Bore Depth":

H&R 20255571 5x112 10mm wheel spacers (pair) for VW B5 Passat - accepts any hub height

H&R 202555712A 5x112 10mm wheel spacers (pair) for VW B5 Passat - accepts up to 16mm hub height

H&R 202555712B 5x112 10mm wheel spacers (pair) for VW B5 Passat - accepts up to 14mm hub height

The 15mm spacer pair for the rear accepts up to 18mm hub height.

I've looked around here and online and haven't managed to find anything related to this in terms of stock specs or how to measure for it. ECS's listings for the same parts (compared by manufacturer number) don't have any of these details so I'm not sure how much I should be concerned with this.

What are your recommendations and experiences?

Thanks a TON!
