+2x or even +3x do seem to be very aggressive, IMO. I believe +12 to +15mm would already serve the purpose without putting too much stress on the suspension. just my 2 cents.

I've done that on both of my Macans w/21" OEM wheels. 10mm or at most 12mm would bring wheels flush with fenders. Anything more than 12mm would stick out

I had seen this, I really like the effect.

However I thought of putting different between front and rear. Because then it seems too wide in front.
These wheels are always 21". My, however, have a different design, Turbo wheels

I guess you guys who are using spacers with your wheels enjoy beating up the paint on your Macan.

Not sure what the offset/specs are on the 21's but on the 20's on my GTS I currently have 10 front/15 rear. Going to swap out for 15 front/17.5 rear shortly which is about as wide as I think I would go. Def get a bit more spray on the side panels though...

I think maybe 15 / 20mm might be the best solution. Does anyone have any photos That can show the result?

I'm planning on 10mm in the front and 12mm in the rear...ECS has longer bolts, but where can we get locking bolts that are extended/longer????

Thanks!

I use 12mm up front and 15mm on the rear. 21,000 km in rain and snow and a lot of high speed driving driving on gravel and ploughing through puddles and ruts on farm dirt roads. Not a single paint chip. Just dirt.
