    New Wheels, don\'t fit, HELP!!

    I've just received my new 18" RS6 replica wheels for my 2004 A3 tdi sport, from johnsons Tyres, wrexham.
    When I fitted them the offset must have been incorrect because they were sticking out about an inch more then my original 17" star Audi alloys did. They were out past the wheel arch on the front. Didn't look good. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    I checked the sizes and both wheels have a PCD of 112 x 5, but the ET is 35 on my new rs6 wheels and 56 on the orignal audi wheels.

    Does anyone know what ET I need? Also where to get these RS6 replicas from, at the correct size for the car?

    Any help would be much apprieciated.

    I have an ET of 50, but think that 45 would suit better.

    Going from a 7.5inch ET56 wheel to a 8inch ET35 will push the rim right out. I was considering changing my wheels. But looking at how close the front wheel is to the outside of the wheel arch, there is really not much ther to play with.

    What dimensions are the proper RS6s from the S-line? 18x7.5 ET50?

    ET35 is the common fitment for the A3/S3 style car not the new 8P car...
