    Replacing standard wheels with bbs. Help!!

    Hi all, i've been offered bbs ck's at a bargain price. I can't decide if they will fit nicely as they are 5x112 8j et 45. Will these fit nicely on an a5 3.0 tdi?

    And will they fit my standard tyres that are 225/35/19?

    Thanks for your help in advance

    The tyres will definatley fit as they are the same as the rears on an RS3 on an 8j wheel,this link will explain the ET hope this helps.
    ET dimensions for the Audi RS3 standard 8.0J wheels and/or the optional 8.5J wheel

    Cheers bud, I'm pretty dull when it comes to things like this. I can't figure it out. You sure they are because I think my standard ones are 8.5j

    225/35/19 are not a standard tyre according to the brochure 255/35/19 are standard on 8.5J, what size tyres do you have?
