    Dude, IIRC PCD for A4/S4/A6/S6/RS6/Passat
    is 5X112.

    My S3 18" OEM RSTT's are ET33

    The Replica's I believe are ET30.

    With different offsets does that mean you can get a "spacer" effect for free as part of changing wheels?

    surely the ofset has more to do with the width of the wheel rather than the diameter. although it is linked in a way as normally as the diameter increases the width increases but his is not always the case.

    e.g. if you had a 17"x7.5" wheel with a 32 ofset, surely you would also want a 32 ofset if you had a 19"x7.5"?, as the width of the wheel hasnt changed.

    yes. if it can do .

    offset is the distace from the centre of the wheel to the hub face of the wheel.
