I've got a lead on these 2015 18" Audi A4 wheels with 245/40 R18 tires, and am considering them for my Silk Blue 2017 Alltrack S

.
Tire Wheel Vehicle Automotive tire Motor vehicle


I believe they are the following:

Product ID: ALY58949HH
Material: Aluminum
Style: 10 Spoke
Finish: Powder Coat Hyper Silver
Size: 18x8
Lugs: 5
Bolt Pattern: 112mm
Center Bore: 66.5 mm (I think they are actually 57.1)
Offset: 46mm
Option Code: CL7
OE Part Number: 8V0601025AQ

I'd need 66.6 to 57.1 hub rings (but now think they are 57.1). I have no idea what the offset would look like on the Alltrack.

I love those wheels, they should look really good on there. I think stock offset is 45, so fitment won't be an issue. You just need some centering rings.

This one wheel has a little rash, but he said the others are good and the tires reportedly only have 500 miles on them. I'll go see them on Friday.

They might actually have the same 57.1 hub size as the Alltrack.

Centering rings are a must but offset should be good, check to be sure.

I'm going to bring some calipers when I look at them.

The Alltrack, just like all other Mk5 and up Golfs, are 57.1mm hub bore with a 5-112 bolt pattern. Offset varied slightly but should be in the mid-40's. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

You have it right.

I just learned in another post the A4 wheels (et 47) are cb 66.56mm, so yes. The A3 version (et 46) are 57.1mm cb.

The seller said his came from a 2015 A4, so I will need the centering rings.

Will the 47 offset be a problem with 245/40-18’s currently on the wheels?

The 245s might be a little wide, but easier with the Alltrack if you have stock suspension height. I have a set of B7 S4 wheels (the 18x8 43 offset BBS CH look-alikes) that I had mounted on my old Mk6 TDI Sportwagen and I was rubbing only while fully loaded for road trip duty with 235s on lowering springs. However, I now have those same wheels with 225-45/18s on the Alltrack and I have zero issues. They are ever so slightly tucked in front, with more tuck in the rear.

Thanks! where were yours rubbing?

I picked up the wheels today and am awaiting delivery of the hub adapters.

WillTheyFit says 47 offset 17.7mm closer to the suspension strut. The outer rim will poke out 7.7mm more than before.

Do you have 18mm of clearance from your existing tire to the strut? The rear shocks might be pretty close to a rub also.

Those should look great. I didn't realize that audi sedans had jumped to a 66.5 center bore... oh well.
