Wheel spacers on a T3

All the old threads, have "dead" pics.

I am looking to add spacers to my 2014 T3 R Line, and not sure what size to get.
It has the stock 20" wheels, and I will be installing H&R springs in the very near future.

Please post pics of your T3 with spacers, showing how the wheels line up with the fender, and let us know what size spacers you are running.

TIA

There are ways to still see the old photobucket pictures. Google it. It requires a chrome browser add in.

Previous: MY13 V6 TDI 4Motion,
BMW X3 3.0d, Subaru outback and the odd Alpha.
Now looking at options.

Stay away from HR lowering springs!!!! I just took them off my Touareg bc it was so BAD!!! Went back to stock. The treg bounced so bad on rough roads, the only people that could tolerate being in the back seat were my kids(7&10)... had them on for 7 months or so... btw Iíll sell them real cheap if you want them

Thanks for the feedback.

Bought a new set. Put them in last weekend. So far I really like them.
The ride is very close to stock, but removed the "top heavy" feeling.

Also added 15mm spacers in the front, and 20mm in the rear.

At first I liked the feel, felt fine, the stance was perfect but after a month or so the ride was just horrible... hope you have better luck than I did.. can u post a pic of the ride

Here it is. H&R springs, 15mm spacers in the front, 20mm spacers in the rear. Springs were just installed 2 days ago, so have not settled yet.

I thought the R lines already had a slight drop from factory?
