    Can anyone help!

    I have just bought an 05 S4 cab, and want to change the wheels from 19 inch rs4's down to 18 inch rs4's i have been into my local alloy wheel dealer and he sais the offset is wrong and you cannot put replicas on the car?

    the reason i want to change is due to doing high mileage and tire costs!

    can someone shed some light


    thanks

    Not too sure I follow that. I know that OEM RS4 wheel won't fit a standard A4 as the offset is wrong due to the RS4 having the flared wheel arches, as such the wheels would 'stick out'.

    By that logic are the 19's on your car currently OEM or replica? And what is the existing offset?

    As long as you buy wheels with the same offset I can't see a problem. Once you know the existing offset then you can start looking for replicas to suit.

    hey mate from stoke audi.

    will your accessory shop be filled with various audi parts like vagparts? e.g interior and exterior additions and all sorts for audi models?
