    Will a 18x8J 5x112 ET30 fit an S3 using a 20mm hub adaptor?

    Hope so

    They will be ET10 offset with the hub adaptors fitted mate, and you will command :respekt: with the amount of poke you are running with this set up!


    Basically, they will fit, but they will either be level or poking out a bit from the arches. Aim for ET20-35 to be safe

    To add to what jojo said, at ET10 and 8J you're very likely to get rubbing problems on the back, which obviously isn't great news.

    Thanks Jojo, thats what I thought, a bit tight. They would have been fine if they were 5x100 but they aren't :(

    When you say rubbing Prawn, do you mean they'll rub the wheel arches or the running gear? Arches i guess?

    Wheel arches bud, the lower the offset, the more the wheel goes outwards.
