Hi Dave

You need to look for wheels that have an ET45 offset, I think the A8 wheels
are not youre best bet as the offsets are wrong. look on EBAY for rims from
newer A4's and A6's . on 5KTQ's you cant go much above 215's without doing
some body mods.

Check out


this is a great site and should tell you what you need to know.
