    HELP! 9 Spoke RS4 (Old Style) Question

    Hi All

    Purchased some RS4 (Old Style) 18 inch 9 spoke alloys of ebay.
    5 Stud Holes same as seen on may A4 cabs..
    Went to a local garage today to have them fitted and the guy has said they dont fit!
    My A4 is a 2002 2.4 Sport which has 17inch 5 star alloys whch I think came as standard?

    Have I missed something?
    Can anyone tell me why these wheels wont fit!?
    Im very confused and obviously have bowed to the guy at the garages better knowledge!
    Any advice answers gratefully received!

    Thanks both of you.

    I will check the wheels and report back.
    If thats the case and they are 100's I guess i chalk it up as an error!

    Friday the 13th, had bad vibe this morning so not surprised!
    Well will whack them back on the bay and look for another set whilst absorbing a loss no doubt!
    Think I prefer the old rs6 wheels now so will have a look for them.
    Thanks again

    as already stated 5x100 i actually sold a genuine set of these last year and they dont come up that often most of the ones for sale are usually cheap copies or they are from a tt etc i personally think they look great and make a change from the usual rs6
