    should fit may stick out the wheel arches a bit too much in my opinion, is it 18 " wheels ya looking at ? if so better off with 225 40 18 tyres and 5x112 et 45.........original 18's are 5x112 et 54 .

    No because ET38 is wrong wrong wrong! Put spacers on ET38 and you will look like a quad bike!

    ET will stand out, i have 18's on mine(genuine wheels) and the et is 54.........the less the ET the more they stick out the arch ! oh and gen wheels are 7.5 x18........not 8x18...........non gens will be better with an ET of 45 at least !

    Oh 1 more thing.....you may find you will also need longer wheel bolts if ya going for a lower et i.e 38/35

    Here is a pic of my S3 running et42 8" on the front, it clearly does not poke, and would not poke if it sat 4mm further out (i.e. et38).

    [​IMG]

    The rear is 9" et42 and again does not poke, an 8" et38 would sit about 9mm further into the arch.

    I did not just guess that they would fit.
