    Hi,

    I would like to know if I can mount BBS CH 8.5X18 offset 35 wheels on my a3 8p (2004)

    On the BBS application guide it is mentionned that it is possible.

    Do you know a member of this website who have mount this wheels on his a3

    No the offset is too low.

    The ideal CH is the 8x18 ET50 CH025 or the 8x19 ET50 CH026.
    Other options are the CK014 8x18 ET44.

    Watch out for replica BBS CH wheels as the 18" is often copied.

    Hope this helps....

    The Germans have different ideas to the rest of us as to what what fits! You will see a lot of ET35 rims listed as suitable fitments by German wheel companies.

    They will fit but you will have a lot of "poke" with ET35

    Would suit the car maybe if the car was really really low with a stretched tyre but in my opinion, CH's wouldn't suit this look!

    Back would be ok, front would not. Im running 9J 18's ET 42 on the back which is pretty much the same as 8.5J ET35. You would get a bit of poke but nothing too extreme. As for the front, you would get about 15mm poke on an 8.5J ET 35.
