    where in kernow are you?

    I run 8.5" wide rims with ET25..... so to get the same `poke` with your 7.5" ET41 you would want a 28.5 mm spacing. However, my car is an S3, so flared wheel arches. You dont want to match my ET. Im not sure how much the flared S3 arches are compared to the A3. But im guessing probably more than 10mm. So, considering i have a little spare room in my wheel arches i would have thought you would be ok with 20mm.

    These are all back of the envelope calcs, or back of the eye lids anyway

    will do. As your over there i should recommend you to the garage i use. Its called AVS and they are on the Barncoose Industrial Estate, same one that Pirate FM is on. Its run by 2 ex Audi service mechanics and are both really genuine guys. Cant recommend them enough
