View Full Version : question about stock wheels.

11-29-2005, 07:01 PM
my sister is trying to get rid of her old wheels from her A4, and i told her id try to help her sell. shes in so.cal and im in norcal. only thing is i know the wheels shes selling are only 15" wheels. but shes telling me shes measured over and over that they are 16"x7's. i even had my brother an ex-AZ member on here go over to her house. and he confirmed they have 16" diameter too. so is it me? or do these wheels come in 16"? and how much can she expect to get? i assume someone can use these for winter. help a brother out.

the 16's were sport versions i think

are they real ronal wheels or reps? I've never seen that style in other than 15's. take the center caps off and see what is says. should have the wheel diameter, width, and ET.

i've never seen 16" in those styles before. 16" stock sport didn't look like those.

definitely look on the wheel.. the info should be printed somewhere.

15" wheels will measure 16"

the 15" is the tire inside diameter, which sits inside the lip/bead of the wheel... so the wheel has to be bigger than 15" to hold the tire on..

I thought 00 and 01 sports had those in 16's....[confused]

Good call SeanF! The inside lip is the "rim" it's where the tire seats. Hence the saying 15" rims rather than wheels. Measure the wheels on your car and I'll bet they're bigger than you thought.

Nope, '00 and '01 sport wheels were 10 spokes.

^^ Not totally true.

The "rim" part or the '00 and '01 sport wheel part?

'01 were celebration wheels. 9 spoke

Not all Cars with the sport package had the 17 "RS4 look" wheels

I'm sure y'all are right and there were other variants however every post '00 B5 sport I've seen has had 16" 10 spoke wheels.

my bad..

'01.5 had celebrations if you bought the complete sports package..
'01 probably had the 10 spoke sport

my '00 a4 came with the above 15" wheels even though it's a sport package (steering wheel, suspension)... i didn't buy the sport wheels....

it says 15x7 on the wheel. cmon...

I'm with you Bitter. It should be stamped somewhere on the back side of the wheel - wheel height, width, and bolt pattern...
