    Wheel help

    Vehicle is a 2018 s4.

    My issue: ordered the 18s (for some unknown reason I didn't check the 19" box). Even worse yet, the 18s came with summer tires. So now, I'd have to buy new 19s with all season, and replace the 18s with winter tires -- then have a set of 18" summer tires that are like new, that I wont use.

    My question: I really like BBS CH R (possible in black). I've never really ordered aftermarket wheels, because I ALWAYS buy cars with the upgraded wheels.

    1. Since 19" is an stock option, i'm guessing I wont have any issues with ride height? I don't want to have to lower the car.

    2. What size rim/tires am I even looking for? I have no idea about this stuff, i'm totally out of my element.

    There shouldn't be any problems with fitment problems with 19", and won't need to lower the car at all. The OEM 19" wheel spec for the S4 is 19x8.5 et40, but can also go with 19x8.5 et35 to make the wheels flush with the fenders. As for tire sizes, 255/35R19 is the OEM spec.

    Aftermarket wheels are comparable, if not better, in terms of weight, strength, and style than most OEM wheels. In deciding which wheels to go with, it's best to find out if those wheel manufactures engineer and test their wheels to meet or exceed the strength requirements set by VIA and TUV.

    Here's some photos of our V810 from our flow formed series wheels.

    I just bought a '14 B8.5 S4 and it came on a set of AG M590 wheels (19x9) but I'm not sure the et/fitment. How can I figure that out?

    Thanks!

    Remove the wheel, look at the backside of the spokes and/or barrel, and it'll stamped with the wheel diameter & width along the offset (ET).
