    Rs4 replica alloy wheels

    Hi there,
    I'm new to the site and also new to Audi's, I have a 53 plate A4 Avant 130 tdi sport which I have owned for nearly two weeks and I'm very happy with it. I am thinking of getting some 18" Rs4 replica alloys but I am unsure of the offset I need and also tyre sizes. Could anybody point me in the right direction or give me some advice please?
    Kind regards
    Daz

    definitely not OEM B7 RS4's...

    if they were, the OEM B7 RS4 offset wll have the tyres sticking out the side so much that they'll be illegal...

    I think that OEM B5 RS4's should fit... and B6 S4's are a great fit... I didn't think they were my cuppa either, but once you see them on the car, they do look "right"....

    if they're original, they're ET29 and won't fit.

    ET40-45 should be a decent fit with a reasonale stance: my S4's are ET45 and have a bit more room....

    et42 will be fine mate according to wheel fitment guide wheels can be

    centre bore 57.1 (can be bigger but need spigot rings to reduce to 57.1)

    stud pattern 5x112

    offset anything from 35-45et

    Offset can go higher (my 16" winter wheels are the orginal Sport Trapeze alloys and are ET54), but you'd probably want spacers to push them out as those look awful compared to the 1J wider S4's that have ET45.
