hi all i am looking for a bit of advice . i need to know if a set of 2007 factory fit s line alloy wheels .width 7.5" ET 54 wheel diametre 18" with a tyre size of 225/40/18 will go straight on an audi a4 2004 many thanks in advance
They will fit yes, but the offset is such that they will sit 11mm further into the arches than a set designed for an A4 with an ET of 43, combined with only a 7.5J wheel I think that would look a bit silly myself.
This is something i have always pondered,if my a4 has an offset of 43 and the a3 wheels are 54 then yes there is a difference of 11,but given that the a3 wheels are 7.5 as opposed to 8 inches then there is roughly 13mm difference in wheel width alone,so where does this 13mm go?
Is it split 6.5mm either side or does the full 13mm add to the 11mm making the wheel sit 24mm into the arch?
Slightly confusing as you need to know what thickness wheel spacers to buy and what length wheel nuts as well.hmmm...
The bloke i sold my S line A3 wheels to pu them on an A4, they fit ok with no issues but they do look weird! especially on the back, needs spacers!! ALso the tyre size being 225 instead of 235 didnt help!
