    Doesn't say the fitment on there. Doubt they're genuine as they're only 7.5" wide.

    Hi,
    Based on what he has wrote "these have come off a 2000 A6 Avant. will also fit A4,Passat" - It looks like they are 5x112

    If they are local, pop round for a trial fit prior to purchase, Try a front and a rear to be 100% on the offset though

    Hope this helps

    Steve

    :( me again. thanks for this guys.

    I phoned the owner of the above EBay auctions, and stated he they were fitted to an '06 A6 avant, yet unsure of the wheel offset and pcd (i'm learning..)

    To finalise everything to stop pestering everyone I'm just going to buy some from new. Would anyone reccomend buying from an Ebay shop..?

    THIS is what I have in mind..

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/18-RS6-alloy-...ryZ28648QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Correct offset and pcd, 'premium tyres' (meh..) and suited centre-caps to go. Would YOU pay £450 for these wheels..? I'd like to get this over and done with, it's bugging me now.

    If anyone could find the 'ideal' set for me (rs6's), correct offset/pcd, priced, top condition etc.. it would be more than appreciated.

    If you look at the part no, you can see that they're for an 8P A3, not an 8L. Don't think Audi ever made them with a 5x100 fitment.

    Rim width: 8J
    Rim diameter:18
    Offset:35

    Stud diameter:100

    Tyres fitted are 225/40/18

    I fitted centre caps from the genuine RS6 wheels.

    you've all been very helpful, thanks again. but Steve, you're my hero. :)

    if anyone comes across a tidy pair that they think will fit-the-bill, give me a shout.

    :)
