    Just been looking at some S8 monoblocks, anyone know if they fit the B5? (obviously will need lower profile tyres)

    Thanks

    Yes but you will need spacer to get the correct offset

    depends on the offset and tyres i spose.
    i run a8 ronals with 215?35?18's with no problems at all but the rears could do with being spaced out cause the offset is 48.

    Should be 215x40x18 to be correct size.

    I run 215/40's on mine... with a 10mm spacer at the rear.

    18" A8 rims will fit your B5.

    Yeah, but they're only tiny 16's... they'll fit no problem but are (in my mind) very overpriced!

    My bad, didn't realise they were 16s - although I did think they looked a bit puny :sorry:
