    As long as the offset's right the extra half inch won't make any difference. 8" RS4's fit on a standard A3, so the bigger S3 wheelarches will easily accomodate it.
     
  6. hmm, wouldnt mind some 8.5j RS4's myself, where are they from?

    those reps look a bit poor to me, if the pictures are of an actual wheel..
     
  8. Why do they look poor to you?

    Those are an absolute bargain! I presumed that was without rubber.
    With some genuine centre caps on they'll look the business.

    Andy, I know you are into the genuine center cap thing, but I'm finding the new silver finished centres, as opposed to the chrome jobbies pretty good.

    I'll need pics to convince me.
    I'm only pushing them as I was fool enough to pay £72 for a set back in the days when the reps were awful
