I have 18x 8 S Line replicas on my car, according to the stamp on the inside of the wheel it's ET 66! What's yours including any spacers?

It looks like 66, I'll need to take another wheel off and check that.

Yeah my Ronal 18's were ET43. IIRC anything between 35 & 45 is ok on a B6.

I'm running Audi A5 17" 'Fan'/7 spokes with an offset of ET28, 7J rim with 235/45/17 tyres (Vredistein Satin touring - which are brilliant in all conditions btw!). Sits flush with bodywork but no scrubbing. Mine's a quattro Sport with B5 perches at the front as well.

My old setup was the A5 (again) sportlines, 18" 8.5j ET29. Had to run slightly rolled 225/40/18 PS3s on them to limit scrubbing. Nice stance and poke without having any side effects. Only slight camber wear to the fronts due to the lowering.

My genuine S-line wheels are ET43, what worries me is the "Made in Poland" stamped on them lol

Hah, mine say NOT O.E.M so there! You posted the options the other day and I'm sure I saw the wheels on there, original from the factory.
I'm not bothered about my wheels not being genuine, they are straight and true, that's the most important thing.
A guy at work has an Astra VXR with genuine wheels and one's cracked and another is buckled

BMW, says it all really. I had a laugh today as the rain was teeming down and the Bmw crawling round the roundabout, Byeeeee!

Well finally cleaned the wheels today and found the ET is 35 on 18 x 8j. I must say all the other markings are cast on the wheel but the ET is stamped with a punch, very poorly I might add but the wheels are straight and true I suppose that's the main thing.

Is making it faster a bad thing ?
My wheels have an ET of 45, but that changes when the you factor in the spacers in my sig.
