    Audi A3 - ET Problem ?

    Hi mates,

    I am thinking on bhought VMR Wheels for my A3.

    They are fabricated on 18x8,5 with ET 38.

    I have Stock absorb shocks and Eibach Pro Kit Springs.

    I will have any problem with car full loaded ?

    Hey Mark!

    The A3 is designed for ET45-55

    Your wheels being ET38 will mean that they will sit a further 7mm out than the suggested maximum offset.

    How much is the car lowered by?

    Have you bought tyres for these wheels?

    You could buy 215/35/18 profile tyres and you 'might' be ok

    I would be worried that the tyres may hit the arch if the car is fully loaded

    It is possible to machine fit the wheels by taking several mm off the wheel face but you might just get 3mm difference - maybe you should look into that

    If you do not understand everything I have said, please let me know!
