    As title says I have a friend who knows someone with genuine rs4 alloys 19", 8.5j and et 48, with 255,35,19 tyres will these be ok for my a3 and would they be worth 500? As that's what he wants for them. Mint condition with minor scuffs
    Thanks

    255 tyres are too big i was going to buy wheels of the exact same spec and was told i would need 225/35/19 or 215/35/19 tyres.

    You mean RS4 style from a new TT? Genuine RS4 wheels from an RS4 are ET29, so they are never going to fit. You want 215 or 225 tyres. I've got 2 falkens for sale.

    i agree with n8 genuine rs4 wheels will never fit in a million years as the offset is way out as n8 describes they are prob off a tt as he says

    I think the specs given are the A6 version as the TT ones are 9 inch wide.
