Iím looking to install A3 sport wheels (8 dual legs). Size is 5x112 17x7 ET56, with 225/45 17 wheels. I know I will need spacers (is 21 mm (0.8'') closer to suspension/brakes components). Any pictures of those wheels on a B5? Also, what spacers? 10 or 12?

Thanks!

I havent seen any on B5 A4's. I have seen one set on a B5 Passat though.

I think you should be safe with 12mm; however, I would go with 20mm so they can be flush.


up to you though...

Thanks. The owner told me that the ET is 45! I always think that A3 Sport wheels ET was 57. Can be possible?

Yea, I actually was going to run A3 S-Line wheels on my B5 but I didnt want to run spacers so I sold them.

The offset of the set i had was ET56.
