    Will these spec wheels fit my 57 Audi A3 TDi Sport? 18", OFFSET: ET 35, 4 X 8.5 J, BORE 66.6 mm. With the option of lowering with the Eibach sportline springs?

    No, ET is too low and the centre bore is too high. You can get an adapter for the bore, but that'd only lower the offset further.

    Maybe running 18s you could get a stretched tyre and roll the arch, but I doubt it. Are you sure you're not thinking of Luke's Alphards?

    That's a Mk4 golf, the old 8Ls could probably take a wider wheel at the back too (since they're the same platform).

    Those wheels will fit. A few mm of poke at the front and just tucked/flush at the rear. You'd need to run a 215/35/18 tyre. And use spigot rings to bring the centre bore from 66.6 to 57.1, this won't affect the offset

    they are the New RS6 alloys, but the original RS6 alloys dont fit the A3 as the offset is way too low and the alloys too wide so you would need to get the reps
