    Hi

    I'm looking at buying the below set of genuine alloys for my car, the only thing is will they fit my car, as they a width of 245 yet my standard wheels only have a 225 width?

    Part no.8T0 601 025 E

    Thanks

    thats the tyre width you need the wheel width and the ET to work out if they will fit

    if these are from and A5 or a B8 A4 then they will fit but the bore is 66.6 and our cars are 57.1 so you will need centering rings or they will wobble, also the a5 offset is usually around ET33-37 so they will definitely rub on the fenders

    simple answer.......no! A5 wheels dont fit an A3

    Tyres are way to big, even if you change them to 225's the offset will push them out of the arch so will look silly on the A3

    Hi! Nice looking rims dude! Anyone knows if you fitt a ET 35 on a audi a3 sportback 2010? I think its original ET 45 or 55. Looks so much better with the rims abit more sticking out :) Thinking of buying the S3 235/35/19

    It's the wheel width and offset that counts.
    ET35 wheel can be more inside than ET50. Just offset number does not tell you anything.

    Check stock width and offset. Then estimate how much there is room to take wheel out. Use calc to check new better size.

    The part number confirms these are from a A5 the spec is
    8.5x19 ET29.


    As correctly suggested above the spigot ring size will be too large @66mm and the offset will be too low.

    I have an A3 (8P Chassis) and I want to put some some TTS alloy on them they are 245/45/18 offset 52 width 9J. Are these wheels to wide? or can I put some 225 tyres on them and squeeze them on?

    TTS alloys are different, yes you can run a 215 or 225 on it, but you will need a 10mm spacers to clear the struts.
