does anyone know if the rims on the A8 will fit on a 2001 jetta. i want the rims that are solid with tiny holes in the top near the tire. they are brushed aluminum. they are so hot. post pics if youve done this.
thanks Austin

sorry, i originally posted about S8 wheels. if you have specs on the A8L wheels, post them here, and i'll tell you if they may fit or not.

I guess with adapters this can be done, as the offset is 45mm. Add about 25mm to that and that will give you ET20, which can fit under your car, with the right tires. No one here has this. The lug pattern is 5 X 112mm
My Eurovan has S8 wheels on here, they are the earlier models but Audi S8's none the less

Otherwise you can do the S3 wheels for the same look, they are just not 18" they are 17"

those aren't the wheels he is talking about. those are the S8 wheels you got. the wheels he is talking about are the A8L wheels. basically looks like a serving tray with holes around the outer edge. out of curiosity brownie, what are putting those wheels on?

Nice, that is what I originally wanted for the EV, but couldn't find a set at a reasonable price in time. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

you mind if i ask how much these ran you? i got a quote for the TT 6 spokes at $295 per wheel. seemed rather expensive for oem wheels.

those wheels are 5x112 eith an ET of something like 42?
with the spacers you will have 18x8s with ET28 or so. they will fit, but I would suggest a fender pull.

those wheels are 5x112 eith an ET of something like 45 (as per Roger). I think you can get spacers that are between 15-20mm, so they won't be THAT bad, but will poke out. they will also look insane with a fender pull tucking!

Re: Audi A8 rims on an MK4 jetta (american gigolo)

The rims i am referring to are the A8L 18" 10 spoke rims. has anyone seen or done this? perhaps photoshop?
thanks
