    A4 alloys

    My friend has a set of RS4 replica alloys for sale cheap and i was wondering if they would fit my a3 as winter wheels?
    Is there any worries with off set etc?
    My car is a 55 plate and his wheels are off a y plate and wheels are 18"
    Cheers.

    unlucky you got stuck with me answering your question then, and not "the wealth" as you put it lol...

    if you can give us the ET and the width of the wheel we'll be able to give you a definitive answer

    Which car as you say RS4 reps, Y may indicate a 5x100 which wont fit the 8P as they're 5x112 stud pattern.

    B5s had a stud pattern of 5x112 as far as I'm aware, but the offset will be too low. I'm pretty sure the first B6s were on a Y plate (2001) so I'd guessed it was likely to be a B6 but that's why I wanted to know the offset to be sure

    like sub says, old A3 or TT then nope as they are 5x100 but even if the correct 5x112 off an A4, chances are the reps will be ET35 so will physically fit your A3 but will stick out a bit and look odd.
