    Talking Calling all "wheel whores" !!!.......... a little advice pleeeeease!

    Good'ay fellow forum'ers and in paticular all the "wheel whores" reading this. Not sure this is the correct place for the enquiry - if not go easy on me, I'm sorry.

    I have an 04 2.0FSI. To cut a long story short I have very luckily stumbled across some 19" Sportec wheels but need a little advice before fitment.

    The tyres on them at the moment (well 2 of them are shagged) are Michelin Pilot? I think and they are 245's. I am looking into putting the car on coilovers within the next month and wondered would they fit when the cars been lowered?

    I dont have any further specs on the wheels at the moment as have only viewed them once - but have been told that they were originally on a GOLF R32 MK1 - so should it be a direct fit for my A3? Will I need any adaptors? what figures on the tyre etc should I be looking for to ensure good fitment?

    Any advice from you pros out there would be muchos appreciated

    Cheers

    Your A3 = 5x112

    Mk4 R32 = 5x100

    Back to the drawing board.

    Plus, depending on how low you want to go on the coilovers, you will need 215's ideally to avoid rubbing

    ok -update. apparently the guy that had them on his mk4 r32 had some h&r wheel adapters to take it from 112 to 100 in order to fit it to the r32.

    so im guessing that the wheels will be direct fit. so lets say i stick abit of rubber on them at 225 or 235 and lower - but not stupid low - just so the wheel fills the arches will it need much work?

    my uncles a panel beater by trade and said that the arches might need rollling?!

    Not strictly true N8, ET35 is fine on a Mk4, it was only on the Mk5 chassis that VAG moved to a very high offset.
