can anyone tell me what offset i need for 18" rs4 wheels to fit my 8p a3 sport
42-52 so long as you've not lowered it too far, and you're using 225/40R18 or smaller rubber.
i dont know wether to go for origional audi rs6 style or new rs4 style lookalikes(not origional audi)
£200 price difference....but cant decide which i prefer
offset on rs4 is 35 or 45
offset on origional audi a3 rs6 lookalikes is ET 54 with 112 pcd (????)
please anybody help...what does the difference in offset mean
and which wheels should i go for?????
smaller the offset the further out the wheels sit.
assuming the rims are both 18x8 (8" wide) then either will be fine. the ET54 ones might need some small spacers to make them fill the arches as 44/45 is about right to fill the arches properly.
personally I'd go for the RS4 out of those two. what colour car??
edit - just seen it's Lava grey. are you gonna fit big drilled/grooved brakes? if not then the RS4 can make the brakes look feeble (even though they are pretty big as far as standard discs are concerned).
Yeah, you need a 45 offset with the RS4's. They stick out a little further than the oem ones but do fill the arches better.
I run 19" RS4's with a 45 offset without problems and it's lowered.
I also personally much prefer the RS4's to the RS6's
cheers guys..... well..... looks like im being swayed towards the rs4's
the missus prefers em aswell and she does drive it more than me......only get my arse in it at weekends
am i right then in thinking if im gonna go for genuine audi 18's the a4 wheels are better(to fill the arches) than the a3 wheels
the A3/A4 RS4 style genuine alloys are the same wheels. the genuine RS4 wheels won't fit as they have an ET20 offset!
kinda guessed that, i meant standard(ish) a4 wheels.... i believe they have an offset of 43 in 18" as opposed to 54 offset on the a3 18"
both being genuine audi
