    Staggered alloy/tyre width query

    Just a quick one. I'm thinking of getting some 18" bbs rs reps in staggered 8.5/9.5 widths for my A4 avant B5 with an ET of 42.

    My arches have been rolled, all be it very very very badly ;-)

    Firstly, will these fit at the front (8.5j) & rear (9.5j)?
    And if they will, what's the best tyre size for a small amount of stretch on the front/rears?

    Cheers ;-)

    I think 9.5j et42 might be too much on the rears you may need a 10/15mm spacer !!

    Cheers dude. Think I'm gonna measure up the current Rs4 reps I have and see what width they are and hopefully order the new rims in the new year ;-)
