    Hello guys,

    Does any one know if 18inch wheels fit over the rs4 b7 brake set up?
    I know 19's come standard but seen a really nice set of Porsche wheels 18inch with high off set and wondered if they would fit over the massive brakes..

    Cheers

    18" wheels were standard on the B7 RS4 in the rest of Europe and will fit over the brakes OK with one exception - if you have the ceramic brakes you have to have 19" wheels.

    It will all depend on the offset, spoke design and size of spacers. It not the size of the disc etc its the wheel touching the caliper you have to think about.

    With ceramics it's the size of the disc as well as offset - the inside diameter of an 18" wheel is too small to even go over the disc/caliper.
