    hi guys ive seen a set of alloys i like from an A4.
    The size is 18 x 8.0 with an offset of ET47.The centre bore is 66.5
    will i need spigot rings?
    will these fit under my rear arches as my A3 is lowered?

    i currently have standard 5 spoke s line wheels with 10mm spacers on the rear.

    i am puzzled with the offest and wheel width so any help is greatly appreciated

    Bore for an A3 is 57.1mm i believe and the ET should be between 45-50. What is the PCD? 5x110 or 112?

    That offset is fine, and the rears will fit without the spacers. As BigWilly said, our hubs are 57.1, so you will need rings. And all A4s back to the B5 gen are 5x112 so that won't be an issue. I'm guessing that with a larger hub bore these are off a B8?
