    With wheels mate your best finding the ones you like/want and all the details;

    . Diameter
    . Width
    . Stud pattern
    . Offset (ET)

    Then you'll be able to get alot more info on weather they fit. Porsche alloys seem to have high offsets usually so id imagine they would fit with adapters just a case of widths as some 911 alloys that i was lokking at are 9s for the front and 11s for the rear so you would probably need two sets of fronts to get them to fit nicely or big spacers to fit the 11s

    Did RyanjonS4 fit Porsche wheels to his S4? Or was it just photoshop? :think:

    You don't have to get the Porsche rears, just get two pairs of the fronts and then some PCD adapters of the right width to correct the ET.

    You want to use the 19x8 ET57 with a H&R hub adaptor. You can use their 15mm, 20mm or 22mm adaptors depending on how you want the wheels to site in the arch. The 22mm will give you an offset of ET35 which is the lowest you can get away with an 8" rim. If you want a set let me know and I will get you a price.
    The 11s will not go no the rear, I will be putting some 10s on the back on my newly aquired B6 Avant and they are tight!! The 11 will not go any where near without serious arch mods.

    Sadly its still just a photoshop :crying:

    I think the stance would need to be spot on to be running porsche rims so coilovers are a must. At a £1000+ though I cant see my self being able to justify it anytime soon as the standard s4 wheels have really grown on me, and the 15mm spacers improve the stance greatly.

    Is it a certain style of porsche wheel you've got in mind or just anything from that stable?

    There are a few types I think would suit a b6, some go for cheap.....some go for a fortune
