         You're running this wide of a rim without any mods to the 
rear fenders???????????   What's the offset on all four rims?  
2.5" above stock heighth? I've seen your web page and the five spoke 
pearl rims look very nice. So does your car stand above stock spring 
heighth? What rims are you willing to part with? Another lister just 
informed me that the new A4 16x7's will fit because the offset is 
45mm. I never would have guessed this! I will never pay this price per
