    hi guys,
    i know this is the wrong forum, but you are all the most knowledgeable about audi's and cars in general so thought would be good just to ask here.....
    basically im getting a 2010 A5 S-line. Done a bit of research and i think the current wheels (19" y design) are 8.5J wide and have an offset of et32?

    basically im looking at some new wheels but they are 9.5J and offset of et45. I put this into the 'wheel offset calculator' (Wheel Offset Calculator) and it says that there will be 26mm Less clearance from the inside of the wheel to the strut housing, and will have the an unchanged exterior clearance.

    would anyone know if they will fit without any problems??

    Cheers

    10-12 mm spacers should do the trich id double check that by measuring when you get the car ;) would look nice stance wise too, care to share pics of the wheels youre contemplating
