    RS4 wheels do not fit.

    Just got a set of rs4 wheels, theyre in very good nick and was very excited about getting them on... but the holes for the wheel nuts dont line up, ive seen alot of rs4 wheels on a3's. Does the hub need changing? My car is a 55 plate a3 sportback but these came off a a3 2003 (8p). If i cant get them to fit, theyll have to go on sale.

    Pretty sure all 8p are the same fitment ?

    Did you actually see these on the other a3 ?

    They may be the older rs4 alloys

    im sure all rs4 alloys are 5x112 so these cant be rs4 alloys but from what iv seen some golf seat had a similar wheel but in the 5x100 fitment

    also the early audi tt had them on witch was 5x100

    Yeah my pal had the old model s3 from new on 53 plate and there's a 53 plate near mine but newer model so the change over must be after sept 2003.

    Surely the year shouldn't be the confusion but the actually model, 8L or 8P very different cars!

    The ones that fits must be reps... I've seen loads on eBay... So your. Are probably GENUINE... To fit then look for universal spacers which would act as adapters... So they would fit

    Hope it helps

    But apparently genuine rs4 rims are 5x 112 so what would the adapters do exactly? 8p a3 is 5x 112 so should fit .

    If anything the op rims are reps made for older shape audi mk4 golf etc...or not?

    Yes u r right but I've seen most of rs4s wheels are 5x100, not quite sure... And maybe I'm wrong

    The adaptors have more wholes to fit any wheel... So you mount the spacers/adaptors and wheels to adaptor... It's kind of converter... I've had that problem before when I had my 206 gti and my only solution was that...

    It's a bit pricy but works

    adapters wil be no good the offset will be crazy.8L runs a lower offset so sit out further already, then add on the width of the adapters and they will never fit.
    back to boost, oh how I missed thee....

    That's the wrong way round, needs 112 to 100 to fit these wheels. I doubt there'd be much market for the other way round, and offset would be really against you.

    Wobble bolts won't work wit that much of a difference, think it's like 4mm either way, so ?x96 or ?x104
