Default Spacer help

Hi just wanting to see if anyone has experience with spacers on the D3, I got some 16mm hubcentric spacers to put on my A8 last week thought I'd get them fitted to the rear when I took the car in to get the front tyres changed, got the tyres fitted yesterday but the spacers don't fit on the rear ordered through mickgarage and selected d3,

https://www.micksgarage.com/d/wheel-...8-2002-to-2010

they fitted on the hub but the mechanic showed me and they looked too small, just measured them at 139mm diameter, can some tell me what size they should please? i'll add some images to help cheers,
Jonny

Had 20mm hubcentric rear only spacers fitted on Saturday, just for anyone who want to see what 20mm look like on the rear loving the new width took it for a 50 mile drive through northumberland today windy roads all is good, its flush with the arch with the 9j with 20 275 35 tyres i wouldnt go anymore otherwise it would go past the arch. Next on the list is rear bumper spray and those downturned exhausts
