With that high offset front wheel will foul inboard suspension .

Spaces required hubcentric with longer bolts plus at rear too , go extra 5mm at the back .

All assuming B8 have same PCD .
PCD and center bore are the same 5x112 and 57.1mm

Yes, will need spacers. With a 15x6.5 wheel, ET is 37, stock. You'll need at least 12mm up front, 17mm out back. Bolts need to be that much longer as well.
