    standard oem rs4 wheels are 18x8.5 with 20mm offset

    there arent that many aftermarkets that fit the rs4 and lots of them are heavier than the oem ones- i just got some 8x18 mtm bimoto replicas at 300 for 4 from ebay- these weigh 12kg each which is less than the oem wheels - their offset is 35mm (standard for many audi aftermarket wheels) and i used h&r wheel spacers 30mm per side to push out the wheels fully to where my original mtm 19" wheels

    the ride and handling are better now and the steering is a lot lighter. the full set of wheels with 255/35/18 tyres was cheaper than a set of 265/30/19 tyres for my old wheels and the wheels look exactly like the original mtms except without the mtm casting in one of the spokes ( and of course they havnt got curb dints in them yet.....)

    if i was doing it again i would probably go for a 25mm per wheel spacer rather than the 30

    If you do change and will sell your ones Olly let me know, if they fit the S2 then I would be interested.

    dont think they will mate, they are et20 so will stick out too much (to fill the wider arches on the rs4)
