    Porsche Alloys

    Evening Ladies/Gents

    Quick question will Porsche turbo 2 alloys (pictured below) fit my 2006 A3? I've listed the sizes and offsets below.

    Fronts: size 8.5 x 18 et 50
    Rears: size*10 x 18 et 65

    Fronts 225 x 40 x ZR18 load index 87Y.
    Rears 265 x 35 x ZR18*

    Any help would be Appreciated

    Thanks

    The minimum PCD adapter you can get is 15mm. So that will make the fronts

    18 x 8.5 ET 35, Rears then being
    18 x 10 ET40

    I'd say wear a 215/35/18 up front and try a 225/40/18 on the rear
