I just purchased a 2014 RS5 and looking for a set of summer wheels. I'm considering a 20x10" or 20x10.5" - don't know which will fit better and have no idea on proper offset. I am on stock suspension and intend to keep it that way. I'd like a flush look, but do not want to deal with any rub - I did that on my old GTI and don't want to have to deal with it again. Finally, not sure on best tire size. Was considering either 285/30 or 295/30 (most likely will be PS4's).
Thanks.

If you want flush with no rub and no spacers a 20x10.5 et20 on 285/30/20" will be perfect. If you select a wheel that isn't kind to your calipers up front there is still room for up to a 7.5mm spacer (front only). There will be no room (or need) for spacers in the rear. If you want to run a 295 you should go with et25 for the same effect.

First pic is pre drop and pre spacers with 285/30/20" on 20x10.5 et 25
Second pic is on the same setup with 5mm rear spacers (=et20) and 12.5mm fronts (=et12.5)
