    I dought they fit as the offset is different, this is to suit the wider arches the rs4 has

    my fat fives are (18"x) 8.5" et45 and fit no problem

    these should fit fine but you'll be better spacing them a bit

    Double check they are genuine RS4 ones and not another wheel made for the "A4" rather than the RS4 - Audi have a nack of producing wide rims for the RS models then slimmer ones as an option purchase on the A models. The genuine RS4 ones are the ones you want and are the nuts!

    The tyre size on the genuine ones will be 245x45x19 (or maybe 255!)

    Just checked and Audi did offer an "S Line" version and these are 8.5 wide and are not worth as much as the real RS4 ones.

    Sorry to keep posting! Th genuine RS4'S will easily get £1000 in good condition, knock a couple of hundred off for curbing - but these prices are without tyres!!

    If you call Audi they will be able to give you a part number - this is stamped inside the wheel

    I always thought that genuine RS4 rims won't fit because of the width and that they are dished so they would stick too far out!

    Genuine RS4 wheels are 19 x 9" ET29.

    9" wheels with an offset of 29 will stick out way past the bodywork.

    They'll be RS4 "style" wheels.

    Probably genuine in the respect that they're oem wheels, but not genuine RS4 wheels.

    Like I have RS6 wheels, which are in fact RS6 "style" wheels in that they're 18 not 19" like the RS6's had.

    Knowledge is power ;)
