    Can somebody please tell me what the OEM offset is on 18" 8P S3 rims.

    :beerchug:

    Thanks for the answers which are 18x7.5 ET54.

    For your own knowledge, anything between et45-55 is suitable for the A3

    If you go above et55, you will require spacers

    The other question I should have asked, are the OEM rims 7.5" or 8"?

    Looking on Ekta it suggests the 18" oem wheels are all all 7.5x18 ET54mm

    There might be some variations. I had a set of original 8P S3 wheels, which were 18x7.5, ET 56. These were off a 2007 build. I currently have a set of RS4 reps, 18x8, ET 42. These rub -- very slightly -- at the rear on the screw holding on the inner guard, at about 11 o'clock. Not big rub, and only if loaded. A little Dremel work will fix it ;)

    Yeah, the BBS CKs rub at the front on the GTI when under extreme cornering load. But it's liveable.
