i really like those wheels. What brand are they? They look like a chore to clean but i might make the sacrifice.

Thanks. They are Road Force RF15's. I think they are easier to clean than the stock wheels. The low dust EBC red brake pads help too.

If that's an A8L, what front end is that?

I think it's Hofele. They sell a body kit for the A8.

[QUOTE=BruceLeroy1984;24835771]I mounted my 22x10.5's over the weekend and I'm happy with the turnout.
ET is +40, I'm running 12mm spacers in the front to clear the brakes and 10mm spacers in the rear. I also lowered 15mm via vcds and haven't experienced any rubbing. Tire's are Continental Extreme Contact DWS 285/30/22.

Great looking vehicle.. Was wondering about the spacers you used. You stated the you used a wider spacer in the front ? Also , im currently running a 22x10.5 et 42 all around with a 15mm spacer wrapped on 265/30 which fits perect. Im installing 295/30 for my new set and im trying to determine how much of a reduction i need on my spacers.

Thanks. I had to use the wider spacer in the front (12mm) in order to clear the front brake calipers. My 22x10.5 et40 wheels wouldn't clear in the front without the spacers. (See images below with no spacer)

The 12mm spacers I added only gives me about 1mm worth of clearance but it has worked well and I haven't had any issues.

With an et42 I don't think you could go lower than a 15mm spacer to clear in the front. My tires are 285....a 295 series will stick out a bit more. You may have some rubbing depending on how much you're lowered.

Edit* My wheels are concave so unless yours are similar spacer sizing could be different.
