    I am looking at buying some 8x18 wheels for my new car (2000 S4 avant). /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    However the offset on them is ET45. I've done a search on the forums and found that people have bought RS4 replica's with either ET30 or ET35 offset for an 8x18 wheel. I know that the old 7x15 wheels on my A4 Tdi avant are ET45. Are 8x18 wheels with an ET45 going to rub on the suspension or arch liners?
    I know it is only 10mm to 15mm difference to the RS4 replica's but this might be all the gap there is.

    Thanks for any help.

    i have 8x18" RS4 reps on my 2000 model B5 A4.... the et i was advised and ordered was 35, however, when they arrived from rochford's, they had et 33 stamped inside them ??
    they fit, no problems at all, and they look the dogs dangelys mate.
    my confusion was with the et number itself... the lower the number, the further out they stick. et 35 is, i believe, the tried and tested, best fit.

    good luck with the wheels, try rochford tyres and mention this forum.
    i got 8x 18" rs4's with Zr rated tyres, center caps and wheels nuts for £625.... free delivery !!!

    post a pic when you get them on the car...
