    They are 9J wide & ET60. You will need 20mm adapaters and 215/35s in order for them to work.

    No Porsche alloys will EVER fit 'without mucking about'... Porsche pattern is 5 x 130, A3's are 5 x 112.

    Plus, that listing seems to suggest that the seller doesn't know the first thing about the wheels...

    He says "they'll need a little refurbishment, since the polished rim has started to corrode".

    Firstly There is NO polished rim, and secondly there is no corrosion. -There's kerb rash, is what there is.

    Be advised also that those particular Porsche rims weigh an absolute TON. I wouldn't put them on if you paid me to. -There are far nicer Porsche rims, and you'd be much better off looking for forged wheels rather than cast. -They'll be much lighter.

    Hence why I said he'll need adapters.

    Understood. :rockwoot:

    I was just making sure that the same would be true for ALL P-car wheels... not just those particular ones.
