Is it worth to put on the front wheel spacers for the S4?  I already had the real wheel spacers on for a while and not sure about the front ones.


It will give you more scrub radius which translates into heavier steering. It will also cause small changes to your suspension geometry as you turn. Spacers will also redistribute the load on the wheel bearings.

I am not sure on the S4, but the wheels may be hub-centric mounting, and rely on the hub spigot for true fitting. You wont want to loose that.

Personally, I probably wouldnt consider any more than 3/16 inch spacer, if any. If you consider any spacing, make sure you dont loose any wheel support or bolt thread depth in the hub.
