I have just got some audi A3 wheels for my 8L S3 from a 8P car with 4 new tyres but i like the wheels more than my s3 ones i know my wheels are 5x100 and these must be 5x112 both wheels are 225x45 R17

also the offset is ET56 and the ones on my S3 are ET32 what size hud adaptors should i be buying 20mm or 25mm?

Are hub adaptors a good idea or should I just swap the tyres
also are these hub adaptors any good for the money

Between 20 or 25mm, I would go with 25mm, if you can get them, 30mm adaptors would make your 8P wheels ET26, which would fill your S3 arches up nicely.

If you have an 8L S3, and the 8P wheels are ET56 with 225/45R17 tyres(I'm guessing the rims won't be wider than 7.5" wide), then with 30mm 5X112 --> 5X100 adaptors, they will 100% fit!
