    ET35 Alloys fitment?

    As I've got a few people interested and itching to buy my wheels, the ones I'm looking at have an ET of 35, I think the standard S-Line alloys are 44 or something?
    The new alloys are 18's, so does ET35 mean they'll stick out further?

    Cheers

    It really depends on the rim width. For an A3/S3 8P, 8.5 width with et45 is about close to your limit, and if you want to drop it you will need to run 215 or 225 rubber.

    An 8in wheel with ET35 will stick out only 4mm more than the 8.5in ET45.

    You can use this calculator to check the difference - Wheel Offset Calculator

    Luke's Alphards on the front are 18" x 8.5 ET35 and he's running a 215/35 so it can be done



    He's on air and they tuck

    Thanks Nath

    The tyres on mine will be 225/40 but they're only 8 inches instead of 8.5 so I'm sure I'll be fine, plus my a3 isn't lowered.......yet

    So then they are a no, you'd need at least an 8.5 with a 215 tyre, so avoid them.

    No you'll need the stretch to make it work, but you won't get any on an 8J

    Nath, surely if the wheel is narrower (8J) they are more likely to fit no?

    Im currently looking at some 18 x 8" 5 x 112pcd ET 45 to fit on a standard Sport MY10 A3, will they fit?
