    Hi all, I have just been offered a set of 18" wheels from a A6 s line quattro 5x112 (thats all he told me) and wasn't sure how or even if they would fit my tqs

    heres the wheels

    They are from a mate who owns a powder coating company so they are being refurbed at no cost if I pay his asking price which is silly low anyway as he owes me a few favours lol

    just want to make sure they will fit my car before I buy them

    thanks

    You need to no the offset id say there somewhere around ET42 which would need 8 or 10mm spacers.

    That's what I was worried about, I'd want something to fill the arches more than the standard tqs wheels do

    They are genuine audi wheels he got from a customer who fitted aftermarket wheels and didnt want the old ones back

    I'm getting them for £150 with tyres and refurbed in any colour,

    Going to try them first to see how they fit, I'm not a fan of using spacers, even the hub centric ones

    Bargain at that price ive got my eye on a set off B6 S4 alloys but i have a liking for those above and am tempting to back out of the S4 wheels and go for something else !! If your not keen gives us a shout on here and ill probably have them if i havent got the B6 ones by then !!

    what colour you getting them ?? Black edition anthracite ??

    I was thinking anthracite or a gunmetal colour, my car is kingfisher so think it would look good with either of those

    Ok so I went and picked up the wheels and took them home to test fit them, 3 were perfect however one has been replaced by a replica at some point and not only is it slightly different to look at but it's also a different offset!

    three of them are et45 18x8j and the replica is et35 18x8j which sits out 10mm more than the rest, got £50 back off him though so on the hunt for another one the right size if anyone knows of a single going? I will keep the odd one as a spare in the boot
    Pic of the difference, good one on the left
