    Will a set of alloys with an ET of 35 Stick out to much on my A4 S line?

    Ive ordered some replica S5 twin spoke alloys with an et of 35 but i think i should have ordered et42 am i correct? my current RS6 FIVE SPOKE stock alloys are pretty flush on the front arches although the rears are set in a bit .I think the rs6's are et42?
    can anyone advise.
    cheers jamie

    These will be fine Jamie. Couple of the guys on here are running ET35 19" wheels with no probs. I went with 8.5J ET45 19's and had to fit a 4mm shim on the front as it was a little to close on the suspension arm.

    The clearance from stut housing to the inside of the wheel will be 8mm MORE
    The outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 8mm

    I'm running 8.5x19 ET25 (225/35/19) on the front & it's just shy of being flush with the wheel arch. ET35 will be fine.

    Yes, ET25 does rub, but only occasionally!
