    Wheel offset question

    Hi all,

    Would 8j 17" alloys with an offset of ET48 fit my A4 without any problems?

    Many thanks,

    Grant

    What is the original wheel offset? Only reason I ask is I'd personally stick with an ET figure as close to the original as possible. Remember the lower the ET number the further out the wheel/tyre will sit from the centre line of the car, the higher ET the closer. You may also need to think about wheel spacers if your looking to achieve a certain 'stance'? If you find a set of wheels with the same ET as original wheels and go for a slightly different width, say 8j and your originals were 7j you'll find they might stick out a bit, therefore if you go for a wider wheel consider a higher ET?

    I'm by no means a wheel expert, so if anyone else wants to weigh in please do so.

    what tyre profile and brand?

    i would personally say it might be a struggle
    wrong tyre choice puts you very close to the upright
