    have recentley bought 1.8t quattro sport.2000.(silver),and am wanting to put some 18"s4 alloys on.

    iv seen some on egay ....there off b5 s4 .

    details ..
    bolt pattern 5x112
    off set 45
    18 "
    stud diameter 112

    would these wheels fit straight on mine???
    would it make any diiference to the way the car drove(being 4 wheel drive )???
    also its just the alloys that are for sale ,with no tyres,so what size tyres would i need ?

    B5 S4 alloys are 17"...

    The specs of the wheels you've listed seem fine, although the width is also needed to be sure. 8" wide at ET45 may catch on the uprights for example, meaning youd need some spacers.

    225/40r18 or 235/40r18 is about right for a sensible 18" rim.

    if you go from 15's or 16's to 18's it'll feel like someone nicked the engine, I did it before and it killed the ooomph till i put super skinny cam-belt tyres on so the rolling radius was the same...

    225/40r18 has the same rolling radius as the original wheels.
