You mention that these wheels might fit the V8? I have a 90 v8 and want to
get bigger rims. Will these 16" fit on my vehicle. Also do you know what width
tire can fit on these rims (widest).

The stock A4 16x7 wheel has a 45mm offset.  This is the same offset as the
optional Fuch 15x7 wheels for the type 44 cars.

The 16x7, 35mm offset wheels WILL NOT FIT a pre-'91 type 44 (except the V8)
car without flaring the rear fenders (or running radical camber in the
rear).  I say again:  The 35mm offset is NOT the correct offset for the
type 44 cars.

I've said this so many times, it is almost a mantra! ;)

Tire Rack is WRONG.

Still, that's a decent price for brand new wheels.  Flaring the fenders is
a small price to pay for looks (ducking and running!).

Thanks again, Chris!
