    Not sure if ET35 is not low on a rim 8J wide...

    They will stick out a bit too much for my liking on the front, 45mm is the lowest you should really go unless your after a bit of show car "poke"

    They wont fit for 2 reasons.

    1st is that they are the wrong pcd . You stud diameter 112 not 100

    the offset is wrong . you are looking at between 45-55 ideally

    hope this helps

    Well on a 9J rim, the lowest offset you can go is ET41 - I know that for a fact

    Ahhhh getting confused again lol.... in that case, these new rs6 wheels, not seen alot of people with them, is there any reason? i think they good good. But again the offset is 35:

    Rim Width: 8J


    Brand: NEW RS6 STYLE


    Rim Diameter: 18 inches


    Rim Structure: One Piece


    Offset: 35


    Manufacturer Part Number: 557


    Number of Studs: 5


    Anyone got some RS4 reps with right stud diameter and offset for sale?

    You can fit et35 but you will have to wear a stretched tyre!

    Ideally you want et50 - a happy medium!

    You must be looking in the wrong places then, Replicas in 5x112 ET45 are the most common fitment you can get, just look at the pages of them on Ebay!

    18 or 19 will fit fine, although it will sit a little high on 19's so you will need to lower it. If you stick to 18's then you will be ok at normal height and the tyres are also a lot cheaper for the 18's.

    i'm getting some 18" reps from wheelbase. They are 45mm - 5 x 112 - nice and cheap, including the upgraded toyo tyres for 609

    Go for the genuine TTs. Wanna start seeing more OEM on this forum rather than replica pot hole crumblers.

    I wish mate, thats listed as about 900 for the 1 wheel!

    If i could go 100% OEM i would, but i think alloys are the only thing over my budget

    Well by a 2nd hand set, wait a bit then get them refurbed, worth it in the long run! There is a genuine set on ebay for about 1100, he'll take 900 outside of the bay cash all day long.

    JUST017 reps aint to bad ive got 19s and believe me they have took some hard knocks and are fine..... i got mine from wheelbase to for about 700 with falcon tires
    but i like the black ones you posted there nice..... the rs6 reps i felt at wheelbase were really light though , felt like they would crumble when i got a grip of em id go for something else .....
