A few years back, I bought a set of the 5 spoke sport wheels off a B6... they didnt fit right, mightve needed slight spacing... If I run 225 series rubber, I should be fine, correct? Or what else would be needed because I need a low budget wheel setup atm...

The same goes for TT wheels (A6, etc)... ET48 I believe? So space them out to be more flush?

with a 45 offset, you'll need to run 10mm spacers and can then run 225's just fine. If you're running 35 offset, nothing is needed to run 225's.

Its like 45.

Btw- the bolt pattern on TT wheels is 5x100 not 5x112

I have run B6 sport wheels on my 2000 a4 with 235/45 AND 225/45 rubber without spacers. You will be fine

Well if its the "A6" version, then it should work if it has a 5x112

strange, my neighbor ran the exact combination on the stock sport suspension and it rubbed on the inside. He had to get spacers to push out the wheels to fit properly.

This.

I had the same problem. Im thinking about scooping some A6 fat fives, which have an ET 35... so does that mean theyll be flush with the fender? Or is that our stock offset. -_-

our stocker 16's have et35 I believe. Going to b5 s4's or b6 sport wheels...they have the 45 offset which confuses me now as others say it fit just fine. I actually have some s4's I'm going to throw on but the car is at the shop now so I can't tell you if they fit or not.

+1.

I have B6 Sport Wheels on my car right now and with 235/45/17s on my stock sport suspension I had rear rubbing on the upright. I'm currently running 8mm spacers and longer bolts on all 4 wheels. I also recently changed over to 225/45/17s and haven't tested to see if they'll work without the spacers or not due to the fact that I no longer have my stock bolts.

I just put on my B6 sports as well. I've got 225/45/17's and no spacers, no rubbing. The rims came with some bald 235/45's on them (B6 stock size) and I tried them just to see. It was *so* close to the upright on the rears even with bald tires. If the tires were new I'm sure they'd rub. So with 225's your probably fine. With 235's you'd need spacers, at least for the rear.

I have a 2000 a4 1.8t with sport suspension and am currently running b6 sport wheels with 235/45 perelli p6's. Decent tread and No rubbage at all. Walky_talky is right about it being super close, But mine are super close with decent tread left. Im buying coilovers in a couple weeks so i just now threw on some 20mm spacers in the rear.....but before i did that i still didnt have any problems with those wheels/offset. Kinda weird some rub, some dont? i guess it depends on tire brand? hmmm, anyways I am gonna put on 225/45's once im done the suspenison so if your buying new tires regaurdless, then i say def go with 225"s

yea i agree with walky. i have the 235/45 on mine, sport suspension and not alot of tread... if they are new tires, rubbing WILL happen. 225's should be good though...
