    Have a look here.

    The wheels are 5 x 114.3 whereas the car is 5 x 112
    The wobble bolts have loose collars which enable them to fit different wheel fitments.

    Mods, can this be made into a sticky and everyone can update as they fit their own wheels.

    Those RS6 reps dont look like they do on an RS6/5/6/7 is the offset dramatically different? I guess they are 21" on the bigger cars too :-/

    Decided to get the S3 C0Z alloys powder coated in anthracite matte. Should be finished tomorrow, pictures to follow. I think the polished / gloss anthracite of the C0Z is a bit messy and they are a bugger to keep maintained, any hint of a kerb and the polished surface is ruined. Hope I made the right decision :laugh:

    just a quick question if I was going to buy a new set of wheels 18 or 19" would the car look right with it not being lowered or is lowering pretty much a must when you change the wheels to aftermarket?

    thanks

    Do you have an S3/Sline? You'd probably get away with it if you do, just....
    Any other suspension setup and you'd want to go lower. But then again you have room to lower on Sline & S3 suspension and it will look better

    sorry its an s3. yeah what happened is I have curbed the diamond cut alloy on my wheel today and im just weighing up the option. I don't really want to go down the lowering route but if I have to I have to.

    thanks
