    offsets on s3

    Hi all, was looking at a set of genuine audi alloys but they are 5x112 so would need adaptors. the thing is the wheels are et43 so what kinda spacing do i need to make them fit in the arch maybe just slightly wider than standard?

    std offset is et 35 so would need to be spaced out 7mm to look std then people mostly use 10mm front and 16mm rear spacers so you would be better off going with 16mm fronts and 20 or 25mm rears. pretty sure thats correct, someone will corect me if im wrong tho. mike

    Standard Avus is ET32 I think, and the RSTT wheels are ET33? After market rims will most likely to be ET35 for a universal fitment on most VAG cars. S3's have wider arches, so can run lower offsets to fill the arches.
