    Steel wheels (what size?)

    I am looking into getting some steel wheels for the winter so I can fit snow tyres, we get it really bad where I live, so what size would I need to clear the front brakes on my a4? It's a 2003 2.5tdi fwd sport 163bhp. Cheers lads

    What about 16" B5 alloys, when I was looking around for a set of steel wheels, I found it cheaper to get a set of used alloys than what people were asking for steel wheels.

    Yer, they are fine. I run a set on a B7 and they are a perfect fit offset wise. Pcd are the same, think only the mk1 TT & A3 had different pcd's.

    I went for a set of these like fat 5's (but not!) Genuine Audi A4 Quattro 16 Inch Alloy Wheels & Tyres | eBay
