I want an aggressive look, but I have no idea if these will work. The car will obviously be lowered.
20 x 9.5 HRE 546R
Fronts are 36 offset
Rear are 24 offset
Without a doubt, but it sounds like he's asking for help and I gave him my opinion. I've had plenty of cars that were form over function but in the case of the S4, it's such a good car, to put a nonfunctional wheel tire combo doesn't make much sense unless you want the performance to suffer.
I appreciate the help and opinions guys.
To be honest, I don't buy my cars specifically for performance unlike some of you (which is cool). To me, the S4 is much more than performance. I love the interior and looks. In comparison, these two things made me choose it over the BMW 335.
I don't track my cars and I don't race my cars. Why get an S4 you ask? Well, I like to have the power for city driving and highway driving (for passing and off ramps). The S4 has everything I want.
Anyway....what are your thoughts on this setup?
20"bbs RSGT wheels
5x112 bolt pattern
Fronts 8.5" 38offset
Rears 9" 36offset
Is this do-able?
And I'm the same - I don't track my car or race - I just drive spirited and enjoy the comfort, refinement, snow capability, sound system and style of the S4. It is a full package. If I only wanted pure driving performance I'd buy an Ariel Atom! Maybe I still will!!!

Before anything always remember that our cars have a 66.6 hub size so you cant use any wheels from a B7 B6 B5 and so on unless you do some type of "down-conversion" go from 66.6 to 57.1..
factory OEM size for 19 is 19x8.5 with a ET of 43..soo
you can run et of 35 33...
me for example im running 19x9 with a et of 28..they would sit flush with the fenders but the neg camber dosnt help it(im too low)..
i think you would be fine with teh et up front but the 24 im not too sure..member the fenders in the back dont stick out as much as the fronts do.
here a pic of my car to give you a better example.
Hope this helps.
