    Hi guys,

    I have a 1999 A3 1.6 sport. Desperately in need of some new wheels!

    Can you advise if the following till fit:

    18" 225/40
    8.5j
    Offset 35

    They are 5x100, which I understand are the correct fitment, just not sure whether they will rub etc etc. Apparently the wheels will come with spacers etc.

    Any help would be great

    Cheers

    Jay

    OK, stud patter correct, correct offset and correct tyre choice, but @8.5" wide, it's most likely going to hit your front suspension struts, and if you space them out to clear them, they will poke out your arches.

    So the answer as to wether they fit your car or not is yes and no.
