Fitting with 15mm spacers is not the same thing.

Clarification - the 15X7 Fuchs work great on the 200 20v tq.  They just
need spacers on the front wheels.  I am using 15mm spacers on front
wheels.  Fuchs mounted on the avant - work great.  Wondering why I
chased a set of new tires so desparately as they do as good with 205/60
Pirelli as the 225/60 Yokahamas I had on the BBS wheels.

I did end up getting Yokahama ABS db, albiet reluctantly as Pilot XGTs
were way too much and the Conti Extreme were back ordered for a long
time.  I hope they will be better the the earlier ABS tires I took off.

But in the meantime I've been driving around with the Fuchs (possibly
for sale).  They look great and do fine on the car.

The UrS 5-spoke 16x8 wheels will fit, because UFO brakes were standard
equipment on the S4 in '92 and '93. I'm pretty sure the 15x7 Fuchs will
not fit, a lister has tried them w/o success.
