    Im in contact with a fella selling a set of claimed 18" genuine audi rs4 style wheels, exactly what im after. What i want to know is how will i know if they are genuine? Don't want to end up buying replicas. And will they fit my 2005 a4 s line without spacers etc?

    Ask for the part number of each wheel. Also ask for the offset of the wheels, PCD and center bore.

    Genuine audi alloys will have the 4 rings, part number and ET on the back of the spokes

    all genuine RS4 wheel are 19", but they were so popular that they became available to a few other audi s line models in 18". there known as OEM rs4 style wheels.

    i have the older RS4 9 spoke 18" wheels fitted but have wanted these for a long time. there are plenty of reps but i wanted genuine. finally after months of daily searching i picked up a genuine spotless set from ebay.de with Michelin PS3 tyres just there. delighted!!

    Does anybody know if the offset on the genuine RS4 wheels (19") would be suitable to run on a normal A4?

    it should be ok only problem may be the arches rubbing so you may need to roll them I have 18s with 225/45/18s and they fit perfect no rubbing but the car is not lowered.
