    OEM offset on 18" S3 rims

    Can somebody please tell me what the OEM offset is on 18" 8P S3 rims.



    Thanks for the answers which are 18x7.5 ET54.

    For your own knowledge, anything between et45-55 is suitable for the A3

    If you go above et55, you will require spacers

    The other question I should have asked, are the OEM rims 7.5" or 8"?

    There might be some variations. I had a set of original 8P S3 wheels, which were 18x7.5, ET 56. These were off a 2007 build. I currently have a set of RS4 reps, 18x8, ET 42. These rub -- very slightly -- at the rear on the screw holding on the inner guard, at about 11 o'clock. Not big rub, and only if loaded. A little Dremel work will fix it

    Yeah, the BBS CKs rub at the front on the GTI when under extreme cornering load. But it's liveable.
