    I can't see 18' wheels fitting much, if anything! On the other hand 18" fat fives should probably fit, as they're an Audi wheel. With regards to the tyres, it all depends on the offset, whether you're running spacers, how low the car actually is. It's something only you can decide really, or do what I do and go through as many threads as possible showing B6 wheels, offsets and tyre sizes to give yourself an idea.

    Just to clarify its a standard A4 1.8T Sport. Also, I dont want it to look like some high riding usual runabout that someones just mashed alloys onto, so what tyres should I be on the lookout for?

    Standard factory size tyres for 18's on a B6 are 235/40 R18.

    Did a Google search and found this site Original Felge 4e0601025m1h7, which I think are Fat fives? They are 8.5x18 et45. They should fit straight on.

    Your oringinal post said 18' instead of 18", so 18' (18 feet) would struggle to go on I think. I had an lol moment when I read his comment, not in a bad way, just seen the funny sarcastic side, don't think anything bad was meant by it.

    Really? No, just trying to be humorous, you know many people running 18 foot wheels? colinurquhart worked it out....but thanks for the insult anyway.

    @bez101, Sorry I should have been a bit clearer, I don't know what offset or size fat fives are and although he's running stock suspension, I didn't know whether he would need spacers. Hence my comment.

    I've heard good things about Osram Nightbreakers, but haven't tried them myself. I did try the Halfrauds extreme brightness bulbs but wasn't impressed. I did a hid conversion over the weekend, much much better.

    I don't know, I'm not the best person to answer that one so I'll leave it to someone who has more experience of tyres.

    I think you should do them chrome/polished, like on the second car I posted. They would look amazing.

    Haha, yes I agree they would. But if I were to polish these wheels up it would take a very long time, I have a friend that owns a alloy polishing business but it would be a ongoing job I'm afraid. My rims will be sanded right back to bare alloy, primed, flatted then painted. I was thinking about a gunmetal colour but I think on dark cars silver is always best. My a4 is just like the one in the first pic, that's just how I want it looking too, shamoooooooth!

    I did indeed James,



    I loved them but I couldn't decide which one to keep but had to get rid of one set and didn't want to get rid of the avus.
    Damn I miss the S4

    All speedo's read fast anyway , just check it with a satnav, so all you will be doing is probably making it more accurate all you cad do is trial fit them , maybe you might need some 5mm spacers

    They will rub with the bigger tyres, they were meant for a8/s8 so no good on the b6. Change the tyres to 235/40/18 and you will have no rubbing issues- might want to space them out 10-15mm on the back to fill the arches properly ! Here's my a6 on them:
    FOR SALE:
    -Golf mk 5/audi a3 1.6 FSI fuel pump, brand new genuine part boxed + seals
    -audi a3 (1998 to 2003) genuine clutch slave cylinder to fit 1.6 engines BRAND NEW
    -Rear bush press tool to fit new rear axle bushes on Golf Mk3/4, Audi a3/S3, Seat Leon/Toledo, Skoda Octavia mk 1/2 used once

    I was running 225/40/18's on mine as they were originally on my B5. So you could always get some of those as they will be cheaper. I thought they looked good with the stretch too as it made the wheels look bigger. The ride didn't feel affected in anyway from the 235's

    That looks incredible! What are the off originally? They look like Mk1 TT wheels but as far as I know the PCD is 5x100. Fitting to a B6 A4, I'm guessing you need a set of these? 5x100 To 5x112 15mm PCD Converter PCD5x1005x112 Only 63.60

    According to another post they were off an A8 so shouldn't need adapters.

    There's two versions, the a8 versions which are 5x112, and the tt versions, which i believe are 17's, and 5x100.

    ...i think :D

    I'd say no as they are quite a bit bigger radius. Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset, Tyre stretch and Rolling Radius calculator

    You could always try one and let us know.

    Also I ran a spacer on the front from memory as it was a bit tight to the brakes but that was on an s4 so it might be different on yours
