    I have a set of 8x18 rs4 reps with et 35. I fitted the wheel and and it looks as though its is going to rub on the strut. has anyone else had this problem?

    The size of the wheel is right and the offset is fine, what tyres are you running? Is it an S3 or A3?

    If you are talking about the fronts, then yes, they should be pretty close to the strut, but not touch it, so long as it rotates fully when all bolted up, there should be no problems.
