    Offset confusion

    I am thinking of getting some 18" alloys with 225/40/18, however I am very confused as to what offset they would need to be. My current standard ones are 6.5J x 16 H2 ET42. I think I could get some with an offset of ET35, but what is safe to get without modification of the arches? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Also what alloys look best, i am currently thinking about the 2 piece oetinger RZs? If anyone has any pics, that would be cool.

    Re: Offset confusion

    Hi mate, ive got 18's on my A3 on a 40 offset, lowered 50mm and no problems at all even with a full load and full boot. I would stick to 40 if you can and there is a massive variety of aftermarket wheels that come in this offset so the choice is yours. Ill post a pic of mine so you can see [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    et 35 is the right offset though for 18"s....going for a et40 wont be a problem though...
