[200q20v] Wheel fitment

I ran the 37MM ET speedlines on my '91 200 with a custom made set of 4 mm
spacers on front. I went with 4mm because it made it so the spokes didn't
hit the UFO, the wheels still were hubcentric, and I felt that I had enough
thread left to use the stock lug bolts. All three issues were finely
balanced. Any thinner and the spokes would hit. Any thicker and the wheel
wouldn't ride on the hub center. Just try to find some longer ball seat lug
bolts, I dare you. BTW, the car drove fine even with the slightly wider
front track.

sport packaged A4 won't fit over the UFO's without some kind of a spacer.
Would tire rack or discount tire have the correct spacer to make this
fitment work, or if not any suggestions?  The other question would be with
the spacer, wouldn't the offset be increased, and though I'm pretty sure
it's not as much of an issue on our cars compared to a front-driver, would
this effect steering feel?  How about the chance of tire rub on the fender
running a 225-50-16?  Any input?  It's amazing how fast money can disappear
once you decide to spend it.
