    Hi guys.

    Got tired searching for this info.

    Does anyone know what the offset and width is on the 17" standard Avus alloy?

    Got a set of 18" S4 wheels that I want to fit on my 2003 S3. Was just wondering what size wheel adaptors I will need and if there will be any issues with the tyre touching the fenders.

    Thanks.

    S4 wheels are a different PCD aren't they. Are they replicas?

    You are going to struggle...
    S3 wheels are 7.5" wide, ET32.

    Adaptors are 20mm thick aren't they...so assuming a S4 has an offset of 40ish...you are looking at ET20 ish with the adaptors...and the S4 wheels may be wider?

    Should be OK at the rear...but I think you'll be out past the arches at the front.

    The S4 wheels have a 35 offset! That makes it worse!
    Damn, now I'll have to get the replicas.
