Anyone have a definitive list of what wheels will clear 18z calipers?

Hello all,

This is my first post on this forum so please go easy on me if I do something wrong  :innocent:

I recently picked up a set of (very dirty) bbs ch024 (oem audi 7.5 x 18 ET54)



I am having a really tough time finding either vw or bbs center caps for these wheels and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction?

Cheers

NK

That's all relative really, depends on what width/ET/diamter the wheels are, what height you're running the car, what tyres you have etc. If it helps I have 19" BBS CH026 which are 8" wide ET50. Im running an 11mm spacer to clear the 18z and that is bare minimum. I believe people say you need 12mm spacers with Pescara's to clear. Other wheels have more clearance so if I were to run an OZ Ultraleggera in the same size setup as I have currently they have more brake clearance due to the spoke/centre layout.

What setup are you looking to run?

Anyone have a photo of the edition 30 wheels on a standard red gti? Just wanting to get an idea how it’ll look without all the plastics painted red. Thanks.

Don’t suppose anyone knows the centre cap size for BBS CH024’s from an Audi A3 do they?
I got some new VW caps, but they’re waaay too small, so ended up using some stick on ones for the time being. I’m now wanting proper caps for when I fully refurb the wheels.

I’ve measured the outside and it looks to be 70mm, but can’t quite accurately measure the inside diameter.
