    They are ET33 if I am right

    unless you get PCD adapters, theyre not going to fit.

    if its the RSTT design you want, just get the RS4's.

    You can't run TT rim's on the A4 the stud pattern is incorrect.

    ******.
    RS4 alloys are ET20 and will not fit.
    What PCD are TT's?

    is anyone running RS4 or similar OEM wheels on a B5?

    OK then, Let me put this another way.
    I need 18's to fit the brakes I want, I would prefer 8j wheels.
    What ET can I get away with on a B5 avant without arch mods?

    can't believe that TT wheels don't even have the same PCD!
     
  7. some b6 models had the same wheels in 18", they will fit.

    You can get RS4 replica's quite cheaply but you need a PCD 5x112.

    Genuine RS4 Wheels are ET20, you need RS4 reps

    I got my RS4 reps with tyres for under £500

    i know but they all seem to be drilled for 112 and 100 pcd.
    i don't want multifit ones

    i reckon an 8 inch rim with a 20 offset will fill the arches perfectly plus the originals are so much nicer than the cheap reps

    thats what the RS4 ones are but everyone says they don't fit without arch work. do you know something they don't?

    Mine are 7j 17 ET35 so an 8j 18 et20 would move the rims in the way rather than out towards the arch?
    no?
