    Fitting A3 Slines to A6 2002

    Hi I have managed to get a set of 18" A3 S Line original wheels (RS6 design)with an offset of 54 and width of 7.5". ( Only have 225 /40/18 Tyres.

    Can you tell me what spacers or if different front disks would set these correctly?? Wheels definatly need spacers as sit to far in the arches and look like would rub against suspension arms on front

    Currently the A6 has a set of 17" Star alloys with an offset of 45 with 7.5". These sat well on the car filling the arches. 235/45/17 Tyres

    ( Orginal wheels supplied with car were 16" with offset of 45 with 7" rims. These had 205/55/16 tyres, however always looked too small for car.

    Any help very appriciated.

    Just realised that the S Line wheels for the S3 were done as 54 offset where as the A4/A6 S Line wheels done as a 43 Offset.

    If anyone has puchased 43 Offsets for an A in error happy to do a swap.



    Thanks

    The usual offset for 18's (at least what i had) were ET35, which i currently run on 20" x 8.5" with ET35 and they are fine.

    You will need 10mm hubcenric spacers, and I'm guessing the new A3's have 5x112 pcd as opposed to older ones with 5 x 100 pcd but if you have already test fitted them you would notice that the bolts don't line up so they must be?
