arent those numbers for the tires not the rims? but i think itll fit. im in no way a wheel expert, but those numbers look ok.

If I remember correctly, A8 wheels have a 5x112 pattern. You may want to search to be sure.

A 245 may be a little wide. If your lowered, you may have rubbing problems. If not, you may be fine.

But like I said, search it up to see.

das eighty ran them for a few minutes. You'll need shorter tires or you'll be monster truckin in a big way. Correct size would be 245/35-18 with rolled fenders.

audizine has wayyyyyyyyyy different taste in looks than vortex . these runs on vortex would be an orgasm to everyone :D imo those are one of the best lookin rims for a4 out there if theyre polished . k flame jacket is on :D

Tires def WAY too big. 235/35 or 225/40. 18x8 should be fine otherwise.

I dunno, I kinda like them... They are definitely leaning towards the VDub style but they look pretty good.
A8 wheels are 5x112 so they will fit. I believe the only Audi wheels that aren't 5x112 are TT wheels and maybe one or two others.

My friends dad has 18" ATP 5 Razze wheels on his A8 with 245/45/18 tires (same size setup as yours) and there's no way they'd fit on my A4 without rubbing in ten different spots. Like everyone else said, you'd pry need to go with a 225 or 235/35/18.

I almost got those for my widebody wheels

B machine wheels are just a little too big for a stock body. Widebody would be very nice with some 255s.

Yes, they'll fit fine, as said though, the tyres are way too big / tall. I'd run them with 235/35x18, and no fender rolling will be required.

They're A8 Monoblocks, and as rare as hens teeth.

and go with the 235/35

LOVE the pie plates on a B5 especially that silver one.

Edit: anyone have pics of these on a black B5? i just searched and didnt find much, i might wanna get a set this summer

with the high offset and width of the wheel no spacer will be needed?
