View Full Version : 17x8 48 offset fit on B5 A4?

I've searched the site but haven't been able to find any conclusive information. I'm considering the purchase of a set of Fat Five's off of an A8. The wheels are 17x8 with a 48 offset. I have a B5 A4 FWD that originally came with 15x7 45 offset wheels. Does anyone know if I can fit the A8 wheels without using spacers? According to this wheel offset calculator I will have 16mm less clearance on the inside and the wheel will extend 10mm outwards. http://www.1010tires.com/WheelOffsetCalculator.asp

Also, does anyone know how much these wheel weigh?

Any info would be great!

they probably weigh +/- 50lbs with a tire. With stock brakes, you should be fine without spacers.
