Hi, I am currently running abt 17" z4 sportrims on my passat. Anyone knows where can I get wheel spacers for those? A link would be appreciated. Thanks

www.parts4vws.com support a long time vw establishment. :thumbup:

as for the width, some do 8mm front/15mm rear assuming the offset is around 35-40mm. so you're going to have to give more info on the Abt wheels you have.

Mine's a 225/45/17 43et. I think the et is crazy. Is it better to change to 30et rims or just play around with the spacer?

spacers are fine. wow with an offset of 43 those things sit in pretty well inside. an 8mm front/20mm rear would bring them pretty flush.

Yeah, I don't get it, why do they have to install the 43et's while abt makes 35et's. Would the hub pop out more than the tires if I were to install spacers?
