Wheel Offset On 8v S3 Sedan

Hi guys

Does anyone know what the wheel offset is of the stock 18" wheels on the S3 sedan? I'm planning on fitting my 20" CH-Rs to the car but am not sure if the current ET40 will be aggressive enough? I would ideally like for the wheel to be just under and inline with the fender without any rubbing issues. Has anyone fitted 20s yet?

Mine was ET46, with 225 tires i believe it needs 15mm spacers on front and 20mm spacers on the back,
The 20´s you want are 9? 9.5? with 235?, 245?

I am waiting for someone to throw something more aggressive under the S3 guards.
I am CERTAIN it can accommodate some pretty serious wheel/tyre combos under there!

Anyone done anything wider than 8.5" or lower than ET40?

Hey guys

Mine are 20 x 8.5 ET40 BBS CH-R Titanium. I'm hoping they suit my Sepang blue sedan...

I have a set of 4 10mm H&R spacers and am going to attempt fitting those with the CH-Rs. That should take the offset to ET30...I'm hoping that it clears without any rubbing issues. I'm also very tempted to try fit the 21"wheels from my wifes SQ5 onto the car LOL!
