    Hi Guys,

    Quick question...

    Hoping to get my wheels re-furb'd, Problem being my Cup 3's are the only wheels i have. He has a set of standard 16" audi wheels i assume they're the 1.8t wheels.

    Will these fit behind my brembo brakes? If not im pretty screwed as he needs the wheels for 5 days...

    Thanks

    No i dont think they will fit, i believe the standard 17" Avus just about fit, so you might need to go for something different if you can....

    im sure someone will correct me if im wrong on this :unsure:

    Jas,

    As above, my understanding is that the 17mm Avus alloys just clear the brembo GT jnr Kit & any audi alloy smaller than 17" won't.
