If these are indeed the 17x7.5 RS4-style wheels that came with the '01.5 A4 sport package, which I had btw, then their offset should be 45mm, same as stock S4 Avus wheels. I didn't try fitting those wheels on my S4, but I'm pretty sure they'll fit, shouldn't need spacers or longer wheel bolts. I've seen pics of S4's with them on AW.
