Im asking for help on behalf of my uncle, because I don't know enough.

Car is a 2003 Audi A4 convertible. Old wheels were 18x 8.5 with 245 tyres and ET43 offset. New wheels 18x9 with 245 tyres and ET52 offset.

New wheels on the car and the front wheels are touching the top suspension arm. According to an online wheel offset calculator, we have lost 15mm inner clearance.

How would you get around this?

15mm hubcentric spacers?

Sell the new wheels?

Or something else I haven't thought of?

Thanks Paul, did you need longer bolts too? And how much we're the spacers?
