    hello looking at changing my wheels for some porsche ones but need to understand how the wheels will sit spoke to the place and this is the information

    The wheel is 8.5x18 et52 5x130 PCD. The adaptors are 5x100-5x130 25mm
    thick. This will give an offset of et27.but wneh fitted will they sit inside arche flush or outside arche any clever people have spoke to jojo and he thinks they will sit flush but we not sure

    Can we have some pics of those S3 owners running 18x8.5 BBS CH rims and 10mm spacers to get an idea on how they sit in the arches please.

    On Chris's car they sit level with the outer arch...if you look closely you can see a fine line of black plastic where the arch liner has been rubbing!

    I can't see 8.5" fitting an A3 without rubbing, if it's low.

    They will actually be closer to a set of CH's without spacers like mine, The BBS CH's are 18x8.5 ET 30. Therefore the porsche rims he is talking about will stick out 3mm more than mine.
