    Alloy help with sizes and offsets

    Hi im looking to replace the alloys on my S3, i think the standard size is 18 x 7.5 with an offset of ET56 with 225/40 tyres is that correct ?

    What offset would be best for 18 x 8 ? considering my car is lowered on H & R springs and i dont want any rubbing.

    As the roads are a bit rough and bumpy and i want to keep everything intact, not bothered about keeping audi alloys as i might go aftermarket when i can decide on the look.

    ET45 is the most common offset

    If you had a choice between ET45's and 48's, which one would you choose and why?
