      Hey man google stance calculator. The first option should come out to a problem written by a j-something. It should really help see the whell/tire vs fender

      i was thinking of going with some oz allegretia 18x8 et48+

      according to the conversion charts. from the stock 17x7 et 51. im going to have +10mm on my backspacing.

      so does that mean im going to need 10 mm spacers so i dont hit my struts?

      well since theres no reply here. i did the dirty work myself and checked the stock rim to strut clearance. seems to be about 16mm from rim to strut stock. so i should still have 6mm to my strut with the new rims. woot no spacers required. (17x8 O.Z. alleggerita 48et, 235/45-17)

      A6 2.5TDI AVANT 2003 TYRE SIZES & RIM SIZE HELP

      Hi, I have a used A6 2.5TDI AVANT 2003 and recently I had to replace tyres, front brake pads & front brake disc. The mechanic informed that the car is not fitted with the original wheels for my car, but from A3.
      Not to void the insurance, (i.e not modified car) I would like to install tyres, rims to original spec without modification & WITHOUT SPACER.
      Can anyone with 2.5TDI AVANT SPORTS help with tyre and rim sizes? ( tyre size is embossed on the outside of the tyre and the rim size is likewise stamped on the inside of the stem of rim viz 7J X 16 H2 ET45mm or similar)

      The problem is compounded that a 5 mm spacer is fitted making the wheel bolts too short for the job and without the spacer, the wheels will not turn.
      The existing wheel set up is tyre is 205/55 R16 W on rim 7J X 16 H2 ET45mm and a 50 mm spacer. The big calliper on 2.5TDI requires more space and the existing rim with spacer is very close to the calliper. Basically I need the correct rim and correct tyres without defaulting the insurance.
      Is there anyone who can help me identify what is the Audi original spec:
      Tyre size? 16 “or 17” (for 2.5 tdi sport someone tells me it should be 17”,)
      Tyre width? 205; 215; or 235mm
      Aspect ratio: 45 or 45 or??
      Speed rating?
      Load rating?
      Rim size? 7J or 7.5 J or 8 J
      Pitch: 5 x 112 is this correct>> I have 5 bolt holes.
      What is correct offset: 35 or 40 or 45 or something different?
      I have attached nameplate from floorpan.

      Can anyone decipher & read the tyre size & rim size from this data

      I have tried entering my car registration into the following link http://www.tyre-shopper.co.uk/ts/TyrePressure.aspx
      Which gives 3 tyre sizes 1) 205/55R16W91 may not the right one as this is what I now have.
      2) 215/55R16Y93 – may be right; but aspect ratio 55 is too big for calliper.
      3)235/45R17w91 – may be right; but not sure.
      Can any one help or who has a similar model ,can throw light. Please.

      Alright so I have changed my mind on going with the previous setup I had mentioned above. My current setup is gonna be as follows:

      Wheels: 17x7.5
      Offset: 38
      Tires: 225/50 or 245/45/17(not sure yet)
      Suspension: currently stock, will be mild drop, .5 to 1 inch drop at most

      My questions is what size spacer should I run for these to fit correctly with no rubbing issues.

      i own a 2000 VW passat Wagon V6, and i currently have the stock 195\65\R15s on the car, and my friend owns a 2002 Audi A41.8T sport package, and his originals are 235\45\R17s. i did the math on the height and everything else so i dnt mess up my trans and speedometer, and the numbers are 25.3469in with mine and 25.6326 for his. i think ill be alright but i dont know the offset differences so i figured id ask what the offset for both cars are so i dont look completely stupid

      go to a site like tirerack.com and put your make model year and stuff in, then go to shop by vehicle in the tires bars, then select previously viewed vehicles if you put ur car in already or just put ur info in right ther, when you go to shop for tires itll ask for original spec or custom and it gives you your original tire size which also gives rim size too as last number like 245\45\R17 the last number is the rims size

      hi everyone who looked at my problem.
      I resolved it by contacting Audi UK and they gave me the rim & tyre size the car originally cam with
      here is the extract
      Having now spoken to our Technical Support Team on your behalf, I am pleased to confirm the following information:

      * The tyre specification is: 235/45, R17, 7.5J, 93Y.

      * The offset ratio is 43, which is known as the ET number or aspect ratio.

      I hope this is the information you need, but if you have any other questions or need help with anything else, please call me on the telephone number below.

      Kind Regards

      Hey I just got my hands on some 08-10 s5 wheels specs are 19x8.5 32 offset
      Not entirely sure the tires I should go with or spacers or even if I need spacers.
      Thinking of 15mm spacers and a 235/35 tire... Maybe with those sizes will rub??
      Help or suggestions ? Thanks!

      Picked up some BMW wheels cheap and I need help determining if they will work or not. I am hoping they wont poke too much.

      They are all 17x8 et34 and I have to run the 20mm adapters to get them on. Any insight would be appreciated, so far I cant wrap my head around the the offsets and wheels widths. Also, if anyone could recommend a tire size that would be great. Oh and they are going on an mk4 gti.

      Can someone please help me, i have some 18 x 9.75 wheels but would these work on my 2010 VW CC? I'm sure the tires on it won't fit because the backs are 275/40/18 and the front is 255/40/18.

      If these wheels would work, what's the biggest tire i can put without having my fenders pulled/rolled.

      Thanks!

      I've got a set of 16" steel rims with new winter tires that came off an '02 Beetle. I wonder if these will fit on an '07 City Golf that currently has 15" stock wheels. My local garage won't give me an answer and seem determined to sell me brand new winter tires for the 15" rims
