    Hi was just wondering if 19" Audi RS4 alloys will fit my A3 sportback?

    Or do they need some adjustment?

    thanks

    Genuine RS4 ones won't fit, too wide and ET too low.

    get the specs of the alloys up and we can advise... also if you havnt already you will want to drop the car a bit otherwise it will look like a range rover :jester:

    I have been told the stud pattern is 5x112, which is fine. But the offset is ET45? Will that be okay or is it too much?

    8.5" wide or narrower on ET45 will fit.

    235mm wide tyres, 35% profile side-walls, forget what the Z means, inner radius 19", 91 is the load rating (615kg) and finally W is for speed rating (168mph max).

    You'd be better off with 225/35s, or 215 even on a 9" wide rim.

    Side note: N8, what's the lowest ET on a 9 that'll fit?

    Considering the RS4 had bespoke arches I would of thought would give the answer...

    Fair point, but the hubs aren't the same, and neither is the suspension so the arches are only worth considering versus a standard A4 (which probably has different hubs too).

    So Just to confirm they will fit but, 225/35s, or 215 would be better?
