    Hey

    Anyone seen these wheels before on S3 8L? I mean those wheels what facelift S8 use, about 2001 year. ( 5x112 8J X 18 & ET 48)

    I know that i have to use those PCD adapters, but have anybody done this before? If S3 original wheels ET is 32, but these S8 wheels ET is 48, then how thick adapters/spacers i have to use to make them look nice on the car?

    20mm spacers all round to make them ET28 would look good, there's room for and extra 10mm on the rear, but I'd not be comfortable running a 30mm spacer personally.

    Aren't the S8 wheels available as 5x110 reps anyway?

    I was hoping he was talking about genuine S8 rims.

    Sry mate, forgot to add this picture.

    Yea, i was talking about genuine S8 D2 wheels.

    Read that 20mm all around will be fine, but then the front wheels will be more outside then the rear. So maybe 20mm adapters front and 25mm adapter to rear? Or 25mm is too much for spacer/adapter?

    Anybody has a picture where front wheels have ET28 and rear ET23? With 18 wheels on S3 8l

    You might struggle to squeeze them in the arches ;)

    Looking good, sadly if im using 20mm and 25mm adapters on ET48 wheels, then they will be more inside then these ones on the photo.

    ... and I run 18x8.5 on 225/40s in ET10 front and ET5 rear and it's tight but fits. I run a bit of camber up front though which helps tuck the wheel in.

    Yeah, you'd have ET28 front, and ET23 rear so about 6mm further into the arch (not exactly a huge difference). You could get 25mm adapters on the front and 30mm on the rear to run ET23 front and ET18 rear, then you'd be only 1mm inside of those ones.

    They were just reps so bolted straight on. Not sure on the offset to be honest as I fitted CH's not long after I got the car.

    Maybe somebody wants to sell me 5x100-->5x112 adaptors? :) New ones are pretty overrated

    Just bought 18'' S8 d2 wheels and still wondering what kind of ET looks best with 18x8 wheels. Do somebody have pictures from the back and sides, with 18x8 and ET23 on rear wheels and ET28 front wheels. Or similar to these ET's.
