    I just had a play around on this ET calculator thing. Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset, Tyre stretch and Rolling Radius calculator

    I think the thinnest adaptors you can get for 5x100 to 5x112 are 20mm, so I think that would make your ET45 into ET25 IIRC?

    So, they would appear to fit ok, assuming your current wheels are 8 inches ET32, running 225/45/17 and the new ones are as you describe above running 225/40/18?

    I'd double check though, its potentially very confusing!!

    i'm running S4 avus rims on my S3, with 20mm front/30mm rear H&R adaptors. The wheels aren't sitting flush but it sits nice.

    20mm fronts and 25 or 30mm for the rears is what I'd go for.
