    Rims for B5 A4 Quattro
    I've got a 1998 R plate A4 2.8V6 Quattro. When I bought it I had 18" RS4 replicas on the car with the original 16" in the boot.

    Unfortunately one of the 18s has a nice big crack inside the rim and is bleeding out air so I'm temporarily running on 3 18s and a 16 while I'm desperately looking for a cheap replacement.

    I'm looking on ebay for replacements and have seen a number of sets of original RS4/TT wheels but the stud pattern on these all appear to be 5x100 and I need 5x112, so am potentially looking looking at other options i.e. a full set of wheels and tyres to replace them.

    Seen the following available:
    Replica RS6 wheels - Rim width: 8J, Stud pattern: 5x112, Offset: 42
    Tyres: 245/40/18

    Official 18" S-Line wheels - Audi part no.8K0601025Q,
    Alloy Spec: 8.0J x 18 H2. ET47. 5/112
    Tyres: 245 / 40 / 18 93y

    The car has 2001 RS4 shocks and springs on it (not sure how much lower this makes the car run than it did as standard). Just wanted to know if either or both of these sets of wheels will comfortably fit on the car with no further modification required and ultimately no rubbing.

    Also, if anyone could advise the offset limits of the B5 that would be helpful.

    Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

    The ET 42 will fit directly on, the ET47's may need spacers to clear the suspension arms on the rear

    the tyres on both are a bit wide for a normal A4 body though i'd imagine.

    245 on 8" wide alloy will look a bit to big imo
    get 225/40/18 and you will be happy

    I've just picked up some 8x18" BBS RX207's with 225 tyres. They need a refurb, but I would let them go as they are for £400... if you're interested in them.

    Re-painted, they're a £800 set of rims... and that's what they'll be up for after I have them refurbished next week.

    Let me know before I set about stripping them.
