    The "Rimz" Thread ** Look here before requesting pics of specific wheels**

    clearance fixed using 5mm spacer, I think 4mm should be enough. I hope it woudn't be rub. It looks very similar to my BBS CH 18"x8 ET50 + 13mm spacer at front. No rubbing issue as well.

    Hi guys, been offered a mint set of rota grids that are only 10 days old!
    Downside is they came off a mk4 golf and he says they are 5x100 but my a3 is 5x112 I believe!
    Are pcd adapters a good idea or shall I leave!
    They are 9.5J so would they be too wide too?

    It depends of the rim offset size mate! I think 9,5inch would be too wide even if they are up to ET50.

    Yeah I meant 35. Confused, How can they be the same? The offsets are different

    8.5 j/ ET 35/ 19 VS 9.0/ ET 40/ 19. Which on would be more concave?

    Good huh? :P The second picture under images of the silver 8P sportback looks pretty cool! Please don't tell me it's the hideous gloss black and silver cut wheels they do?

    Anybody know what thickness adaptors I'd need if my new wheels are et57?
    Think the guy said his mate ran them with 25mm"s that work out well?

    What width are the wheels? You want around ET45 on a 8.5J rim, and use this comparison site to get the right offset for the width you're using - 1010TIRES.COM - Wheel Offset Calculator

    Maybe. 9" is really wide on an 8P A/S3, though that gives you just about the best outward fitment so if it doesn't fit at ET52 it's probably not going to fit.

    Hey Rick20VT,
    So thinking of switching my new s3 8v rims to VMR.
    Do you have any issues with them? Shaking? Unbalanced? Pulling steering wheel?

    Tnx

    You won't have any troubles with that size unless you start running massive spacers and stuff like that.

    I was waiting to put a pic up when I got one of it cleaned and new spacers on it but here it is
