Re: 5k/2c wheels
Yes, I think it will work fine.
The A6 wheels (like A4 ones) same as my Dads Car fit great. The
S4 wheels I thought were the same size. 16x7.5 I thought. Either way, I
have heard of this working before as well. Its definately worth a try.
New A4 Sport Package wheels may work to. I think they are ET 40.

1983 ur-q / black / fixing it up
1984 4000 quattro / modified/ awaiting Turbo Transplant.

1996 A6q / Volcano / Dads Car
