    18x8 -et44 will fit an s3 sportback with coilovers

    I can get a set of bbs ch wheels which i will use during winter times. They ome from a vw gti 30th ed but the et44 worries me a bit.

    Will they fit because my speedlines are et48 and just fit but the ch's are 8.5j but i am not sure that makes a difference.

    So will et44 fit with 8j

    Thanks

    Why didn't you just send a pm? What size tyres are you planning to run? I'm running 18x8 ET45 currently with a 225/40/18, can still run it quite low, but I'm on air, you'd have to play around with ride height.

    I'm on air ride, so I run off PSI. You'll have to just see how it goes, either lower/raise.

    I've been running 8x18 ET43 with 225/40 18 and Bilstein PSS B14 coilovers (not very low though) for some time now and I have no problems... you'll be fine
