    All,

    I have done a search but it just adds to my confusion. What I want to know or get advice on is will 18 x 7.5 KEI Racing Force 10 wheels with 225/40/18 tyres fit my 2001 S3 without any other mods.

    I also read that the ET is an issue but I cant find the ET for these wheels.

    Any help would be great, I want to get these tomorrow on my day off.

    Thanks peep's

    Chris.

    Give them a ring mate to find out the ET...

    The PCD you need is 5 x 100, so if the wheels you are looking at have that PCD then you should be OK if you can confirm what the offset is. On a similar age A3 you want ET35, I would imagine the S3 is the same but I'm sure someone will say if its not.

    Tom,

    Thanks for the reply. Some websites state ET45 multifit, what does this mean?

    Thanks

    Another site states ET42. I read somewhere that you can go 5-7mm up, is this true.

    the multi fit is when the wheel has 10 holes (2 stud patern's) so fit's a number of car's..

    The same as some of the after market RS4 wheels that fit VW and Audi 5x100 and 5x112 stud patterns
