    Hi people. Havent posted in here in a while cos my car was off road. Got engine changed and bought rs4 19s. But without centre caps. Ive looked at some nice "S line" logo ones on ebay. They say they are 60mm. Will these fit my wheels? Just to clarify they are lemans 19s et48. Gonna fit them next week with tyres. Also because they are et48 im getting 20mm spacers !! So will be et28 when they are on. Someone on here sent me a pic of there car with genuine 9j et29 rs4 alloys on there b6 and looked superb. Surely 1mm wont make much difference. Let me knoe what you guys think and let me know about the centre caps.

    Thanks

    Try measuring the diameter and as a rule of thumb generally if they're within about 5mm they're alright or worst comes to worst try again they're generally only about a fiver on eBay.

    Might just about get away with it or need arches rolling, I was on about et34 rear (front was about et40 which was fine) with 245 tyres and they would rub when the back was loaded... if your suspension's stock you might get away with it but it'll look like a tractor on stock suspension and you'll be lowering it shortly after (I did). I presume the spacers have longer bolts too? I've gone through allot of wheel/tyre/spacer combinations and wouldn't personally run spacers or larger alloys again just because of the extra things to go wrong and extra cost of everything, don't get me wrong my car doesn't look half as good as it has but for a better turning circle, quicker acceleration, lack of potential wheel woble, less chance of cracking alloys, cheaper cost of tyres/alloys, less mechanical wear and probably more I'll be sticking with lightweight 17's (each to their own though I'm all for people doing what they want to their car's and no doubt they will look good).

    No idea about Manchester turbo places as I'm from Birmingham and around here far as I know people use Midland Turbo, theirs a few places selling them online too but I have no experiance with any and personally generally get the stock next size up just because I'm usually paranoid about longevity of hybrids.

    Right so convert my current turbo and not buy a hybrid. Cool. I'll just have to Google turbo places. Thanks for your help man
