Alloy wheels: What OEM wheels will fit / seeking OEM items.
Apologies if it's been asked elsewhere, but an hour of internet searching has again left me slightly confused here (there's a pattern emerging I suspect!) so some help would be good!
The car is a 2003 Audi A4 2.5TDi and from what I can tell, it has these wheels as standard:
...or at least, that's what the current spare wheel looks like.
The car has aftermarket 18" wheels fitted, the lovely Mrs DavieMac has since burst a tyre and after lecturing her about potholes I subsequently launched into into what could be best described as a quarry and buggered another tyre along with a wheel.
I'm now desperately searching for a set of OEM 16" alloys (plus tyres) for it so I can do away with the 18's but the usual places have drawn a blank (I've popped up a wanted ad) so I'm now looking at my other options but I'm unclear as to what wheels will fit the car, or is it a case of any 16" VAG wheel and 205/55/16 tyre combo will suffice... or do for instance VW, Skodas and otehr Audi models have different PCD's and offsets.
Any help would be much appreciated, the MOT is due in a couple of weeks so I'm a bit stuck as it won't pass with an odd sized spare as fitted to it at the moment... or if some kind hearted soul in Scotland has a set of a suitable set wheels sat doing nowt that they'd be willing to part with or even "hire" out temporarily untill I either buy new ones, or source another 18" I'd be very gratefull.
Some more tyre related questions!
Just to update this...
The hunt for OEM wheels keeps falling on it's arse however I can get 4 x 245/40/R18 tyres (of a mate's mate's mate...) for a very very reasonable price however given the current tyres are 235/40/R18's, can anybody advise if the slightly wider 245 tyres will go on the A4 saloon without issues?
Appreciate things like wheel offset come into it too, and unfortunately I'm unsure of the offset of the aftermarket wheel it wears at present... so that said and done, guess I've just talked myself into the answer which is "they may or they may not"
But as a general question, 245/40/18's on a 2003 A4 saloon?
Thanks in advance
