Agree, I Inquired with BORA but they do not have anything for the CS. I have used them on the last 2 Jeep’s and put over 200,000 on each with no issues

In the VW world, I'd go with H&R or the independents like shopdap, Blackforest, ECS, etc. Don't forget to get longer lug bolts.

It's simple physics. It's an extended load out from the wheel bearings.
Understand the simple physics but as may people run aftermarket wheels with more offset equivalent to a set of typical spacers I don't think I've heard about pre-mature wheel bearing failures related to it.

go and buy wheel spacers which are made of AL7075-T6 and with lightweight design~ 'cause when you put spacers on your wheel, the weight on suspension increase, which will cause damage on your vehicle, but a lightweight design spacer won't bring too much weight to your wheel.

I’m going to go with 30mm, just over 1”
Do you have stock wheels and suspension? I am stock and looking to add spacers and trying to figure out what size to add. Do you have pictures of before and after spacers?
Thanks and good luck!

Any MK7 Golf spacer will work on the Atlas - so many available. Shopdap.com has some, ESC, H&R, the list goes on.

I wouldn’t mind a little wider stance and I’m not a car guy so pardon my knowledge as I ask. What’s the thickest spacer I can get without doing the hub version? 2021 se w/tech

I just ordered a set of spacers for a MK7 GTI that I plan on putting on next week if I have the time. I will post before and after pics. I have a 20 SE so 18 inch wheels. Looking to fill that wheel well in and get a little poke!
