    Wheel fitment please help???

    im after some new wheels but i don’t really know much about the whole PCD, Offset thing.
    Could someone tell me if these would fit?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=280326552768

    or

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/18-rs8-black-alloy-wheels-tyres-audi-vw-passat-golf-t4_W0QQitemZ300270464061QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarP arts_Acc_Wheels_tyres_Trims_Car_Rims_ET?hash=item3 00270464061&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2| 65%3A1|39%3A1|240%3A1318

    am i right in thinking that an Audi A3 1.6 1998 is 5x100 with an offset of 35to45? =/ as i said i don’t know much about this so i just want to make sure before i buy. if someone could help me out i would be grateful...

    Thanks

    Leave out the second choice!!! Lambo-likes are nicer!

    They should fit fine, however you probably need to purchase some spacers, 10mm should sit nice on A3 arches.

    2002 A3 1.8TQS ~ Denim Blue ~ 180BHP ~ Black Leathers ~ AP Coilover ~ 18" Nuvolari's, Gunmetal/Polished Face ~ 5mm Spacers all round

    will fit since as stated in the ad, they fit mk4 golfs.

    As said above, leave the 2nd choice, they are awful imo
    ^^ In my opinion

    Leave the S8 wheels they're most probably the worst wheel possible for the MKIV Golf/A3.

    Lambo's look kool though, check out scott's S3 that looks pretty tough on lambos..

    I looked about at various wheels and I was torn between the lambo ones and the new RS4 wheels. I went for the RS4s in the end.

    18's in ET35 and no spacers just so you get an idea...
