    Wheel fitment - A5 BE wheels?

    I'm looking at getting some A5 BE rotors for my S3 and I'm not sure if they'll fit because of the width and offset.

    They're 9J x 19, stud pattern is 5 x 112, but the offset is ET33. Can anyone help?

    Cheers
    Mark

    The bore is 57.1 on the TT and our A/S3s, but ET52 is too low for a 9" wide wheel to clear the strut on the inside so you'll need a spacer. I think you want 8mm spacers.

    ET48 (a 6mm spacer) will give you the same outer position, but I don't know if that'll clear the strut.

    ET36 (16mm spacer) would take it to where your 8.5 sits inside, but then it won't clear the arch.

    You'll need skinner tyres, that's a fact!

    Just seeing it's on an A4... no idea what the limits are on them, are the just the same as A3s N8? Center bore is still 57.1, but no idea about ET/width ranges.

    Offsets are similar to the 8P iirc.
