      Funny, I have a spare set of black spacers as well because I ended up getting silver for my Golf R setup....was going to give them a try on the Tig this summer but I haven't lowered it so not sure how it will look flush with the higher ride (OEM ride height). Love the look of the slightly lower ride height though....might have to try some used springs.....

      Hello Everyone,

      I am a new Tiguan owner and eventually will want to upgrade to the bigger 235/65/17 tires but for now was thinking of just adding spacers until the tires wear down.

      Is anyone running spacers on stock 17" wheels? And if so, can you please post a photo (from the rear) if possible. I'm curious to see if spacers alone will help with the look until it's time to get new tires.


      Thanks!

      Thanks Joszer,

      It looks like that set includes 10mm spacers upfront and 15mm in the rear, is that correct? Did you need to use the extended bolts or will the stock bolts work?

      What size tires are you running? and would you happen to have photos from the rear?

      Sorry for all of the questions, just trying to get my ducks in a row.

      My only gripes with the Non-RLine Tiguans are the ugly front bumper and that the tires look way too small for the vehicle from the rear. This is going to be my wifes car but I need to make it look as nice as possible, lol.


      Thanks!

      The R-Line 19's are 19x8.5 +38 with 255/45/19 tires. Not sure of the 17" specs, so space accordingly. I believe 10/15 is the most common kit for stock wheels and you'll need to get extended lug bolts, the most you can run safely on stock ones is 5mm with proper thread engagement.

      Here is the wife’s with 12.5mm in the front and 17.5mm rear. I had these on my GTI in the summer and test fit them on her car and thats where they stayed. I the got 15/20 for the GTI which is the standard “flush kit” for the oem wheels. Not 10/15

      They look good in my opinion. If I were buying a new set for her I’d go with 15/20.

      Here are a couple more. The rear shot obviously has a winter wheel on it with a 45 offset vs the OEM 40. The winter wheels are 7.5in wide vs OEM 7in.

      I found a black set at Deutsche auto.
      They come with extended wheel lugs that are black. I have the blacked out r line with the 19 inch rims. You still good with the 10/15 set?

As far as the lugs go, I had some left over black 3M vinyl and I placed black vinyl over the lug faces so the centers of the lug caps would remain black. I think that the 10/15mm combo sets up the wheels pretty flush with the fenders. My Tig is lowered on OEM Golf R springs btw.

      Really, really digging this look. Going just past the fenders makes it look aggressive, especially with the beefier tires. If you don't mind my asking, what did you use to mount your 4Motion badge on your front grill? I've debadged mine, but looking for a good place for the 4Motion badge and yours looks great.

      Need to get some pics, but I just installed 20mm ECS Tuning spacers on all 4 corners. I have a 2020 Tiguan SE-R Black with the 20in OEM wheels. Sits pretty flush, front slight poke. 15/20 would be perfect, but I had these leftover from my previous Tig. Pics when it stops pouring.

      I’m thinking of doing the same to my ‘20, would love to see how yours turned out
