    I am sure

    google rochfordtyres and they will give you the correct offsets and PCD's for the a3 and a4

    the pcd is the same, just the offset is wrong. spacers will no help in this matter

    if you fit those rims you will get rubbing and will stick out very far!

    The wheels are obviously different if you see them. The A3s are pretty much flat across the face, but the A4s are more dished in a similar way to the appearance of the original RS6s.

    The reason the A4 wheels are more dished is down to the fact that they are an 8" rim. The A3 'flat' version is 7.5" so to get S-Line wheels you really need to get genuine A3 versions.
