    S4,6,8 wheels and spacer advice

    I've been looking for a good while now for a set of s4,6,8 18 inch 6 spoke alloys but can't find any anywhere does anyone know if they fit and where I might be able to find some, also I'd like to space the wheels out slightly. Ive got 17inch avus wheels and it's got eibach springs. Any suggestions/advice welcome
    thanks

    No probs... you will definitely need adaptors then and that will affect your choice of spacer...

    Right ok, I'll hold on for the time being then. Although I may just keep the 17s and space them out, what you reckon?

    I wouldn't mind a set of these too, are reps easy to fine I've checked eBay without any luck? There are a set of genuine ones on there in gunmetal grey if anybody is after some:

    Audi B6 S4 Avus wheels, 18", refinished, with tyres on eBay (end time 22-Aug-10 19:29:34 BST)

    No good to me as the colour won't suit my car IMO and it seems daft paying top dollar for some just refurbed ones only to paint them again....

    There are plenty of reps on Ebay. Which wheels are you looking for? The S4's? If so, S4 reps are still pretty expensive for what they are!

    trouble with reps are they tend to be very heavy

    I know what you mean Dave. Mine felt quite heavy when i lifted one up. Tbh, i don't feel any disadvantages ever since they've been on the car though so i'm happy with them.
