    Would a set of 18 x 9 inch wheels with an offset of 52 fit the B6?

    i think you would rub on the inside with 52 but with a 10mm spacer each side would make the offset 42mm then so with the spacers yes they will. someone confirm this

    Im running 19x9 at ET42 fronts and ET 37 (i think) rear with a 5mm spacer, I think you would need spacers to get to around the ET42 mark so you dont rub the caliper as i know mine sit quite close, theres pics of mine in members rides if you want to look to get an idea of how they sit

    I want to get them close to the arch (without rubbing). Danny -- would I be able to run 20mm spaces? Or is that going to be a bit much?

    By the way - thanks for all the help guys (and girls)
