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

The 16x7, 35mm offset wheels WILL NOT FIT a pre-'91 type 44 (except the
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
a small price to pay for looks (ducking and running!).

Thanks again, Chris!

35mm is, however, the perfect offset for early UrQ owners who want to
fill their wheel wells a little more. A number of listers have this
offset with their wheels.
