    Hi,

    I have had a read through a few previous threads regarding offsets, but still unsure.

    Long story short, due to be fetching some new winter alloys with tyres tomorow, but they are ET31 - will these fit onto my A38P?

    Thanks in advance for any help with this (y)

    Jonny.

    What is the width of the standard wheels and the new wheels? Assuming both are the same the new wheels will poke out 14mm more under the arches if the ones you have currently are ET45 or 19mm more if they are ET50 so you're biggest concern would be the wheels rubbing on the arches.

    To know for sure you'll need to know:
    Wheel size and width, offset, new and old tyre sizes.
    Other things to consider are the centre bore and wheel bolt pattern.

    Nope, ET31 is not good on the A38P (unless you have RS3 arches!)
