    Wheels are 5 x 112mm with 35mm - 45mm offset, I think S4's come with a 42mm. I have ran both 35 & 45mm offsets with no problems in a 18" wheel.

    235/35 -19 on 8" just for a comparison .

    They are19x8 and will have a spacer on the rear and probably 215/35 tyres dropped on apcoilovers

    Thanks, only one choice there got to keep the bentley caps or i think they wouldn't look as good. Think they make a refreshing change as an oem+ wheel

    post the final specs (offest, tyres, etc) and pics one you get 'em...

    they're look just on the limit there: provided there's no scrubbing, should be very nice....
