    Trying to put some S4 avus wheels onto the S3 but they are a slightly different size, are there any adaptors that can be used in place of this or is it far too much effort??

    Different pcd bud, you need 5x100 to 5x112 adaptors, what offset are the wheels? it's not a major problem, once you have the adaptors they'll fit straight on:)

    Off set is the distance the wheel will sit from the hub face. If you have genuine S4 rims, they will be around ET45 or there abouts, you need ET20-ET35. The offset should be printed on the rim somwhere, look by the bolt holes underneath the center cap, or on the back of the spokes or hub face.

    ET54 is fine (even if you meant 45), you'll just need spacers. Not sure what sort of spacing the PCD adapters will give, but you basically just have to push the wheel further out from the hub. Might end up being too wide though and stick out of the arches, but look into it before committing to sell your shiny new wheels!
