    Yep you'll be fine, above the standard ET42 compensates for the extra width of the rims with correct size tyres.

    You'll probably need spacers. 8.5" rims wont go on at ET48.

    Personally i dont believe 8.5's fit a B5 properly. You end up with a degree of poke and stretched tyres, and thats just not for me.

    Thanks for the reply
    I dont mind abit of poke and stretched tyres; anything wrong with that?
    Im still not sure what wheels, I've always wanted bbs Lms. I habe the standard 17" avus s4 wheels, im also considering the same wheels in 18" powder coated. I know I will have to lower my car to get it looking better- that's another story, I don't know which route to go coilies or springs?
