    You need to be careful replacing wheels. Just because the stud pattern is the same there are issues such as off-set to take into account.

    Paul Waterloo may have some info on his A8 site (www.audipages.com). This site does not have the forums etc, its just an essential place to know if you are running or thinking of running and 8.

    I will pm you some other sites that will prolly help...

    look at the rochford tyres site - they have a good fitment guide, covers size, offset, bolt pattern and bore.

    Off hand I think that you can use a6 and a4 wheels. smaller wheels might be a problem cos of fouling the calipers.
