I went and took a measurement of my A4 quattro, and the wheel bolt
circle appears to be 5x108mm.  I used a ruler and it's a bit of
exercise in eyeballing when trying to determine the bolt circle
of a 5-bolt wheel, which has a slightly dished-in center.

Any way, the factory wheel is a 7Jx16 ET45.  Thus, 45mm offset.
