    RS4 Wheels

    Thanks for quick response as I'm going to get a set this weekend and can't return them if they are wrong. Tried 8x19 ET42 and they rubbed on arches not good! So this information is great.

    Cheers.

    You should wait for some more responses because mine is 19/8.5/and 45 and they were tight , Maybe yours will stick out im not sure just wait for a few more answers on here first just to make sure ...

    RS4 Wheels

    thanks guys. I'm I reading this right, the bigger the offset number the further in under the arch the wheel will sit

    Yes, its kind of inverse. I looked into this recently, the more offset the less distance between wheel and hub.
