Just wondering if someone can confirm this. I recently bought a 2010 Audi A4 3.0 Tdi Quattro ltd ed it has 8K0 601 025 AA 19" rims with 255x35x19 tyres. I want to buy a set of winter tyres and rims but am trying to work out the centre bore. Looking around Google I see both the 57.1mm and the 66.5mm stated for these rims. Any easy way to find out?

Also the tyres on it at present are 96W extra load tyres.

The rims/tyres I am looking at I think are these 17 inch winter wheels original Audi Q5 Type 8R Winter tyres 8R0071497 | eBay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182231469735?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT) not these exact ones though, much cheaper than that.

I am waiting for the local seller to give me all the exact spec. Only thing I did note is that they had dunlop 215x55xr17 tyres. Do you think I would have any issues with them being normal 91 rated or should they be extra load rated even for these narrower higher profile tyres.

Thanks for any help the tyre rim matching is always a nightmare.

Your car has the larger bore size of 66.5. I have the same model year and exactly the same rims.

ah thanks a huge amount Embisix that's one part done.

I think they have given me the wrong info on the tyres dunlop do a wintersport 3d tyre which looks exactly like the tread in their pictures but it only comes in a 94 or 98 loading so it may be ok with the better loading.

ok talked to Audi said that I can get a set of rims from either a Q5 or maybe off an a6 allroad part number 4F0 071 497 K. They appear to have 7J 17H2ET34 AU033 also stamped on them. Audi say they won't fit my car. Is there anyone who knows how to check that for me and why they would not fit?

Audi were good enough to offer me the rims they said would fit at 629 +VAT each and they guess about 200 a tyre + fitting each. Sounds like a bargin I will take 2 sets NOT!

Cheers for any help

It's all about the offset mate. ET34 is way off.

even with it being a much skinnier tyre? am I trying to get the ET so the inside face of the new rim is in exactly the same position as the present one, rather than the new rim being centre of the old tyre if that makes sense. Online Wheel and Tyre Fitment Calculator. Offset, Tyre Stretch and Speedo Error | Will They Fit (http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=255&aspect=35&diameter=19&wheelwidth=8.5&offset=43&width2=215&aspect2=55&wheel_size=17&wheel_width=7&offset2=34#isPage=1)

it seems like the hunt will go on ! Its a shame as these rims had winter tyres on them already for a good price.

Why, for which ET?

the newer winter tyre rims that are ET34 7J where as the ones on as standard are 8.5J ET43 or am I pushing them the wrong way?

Less ET means wheel is coming more out.

so a spacer with the lower ET 34 taking it up to ET43 wil mean I have actually pushed the rim inwards? oh this ET side of things is tricky. I take it I am just better finding something with a closer ET than 43 original and 34 new even if the thinner tyres will sit within the area the OEM ones sit. I did notice another site says I will have positive scrub angle of 8mm which may cause handling issues.

For nice view et43 needs spacers:). And "standard are 8.5J ET43" this cant be standard for 17" even 18" are 8! But its always good to keep standard, but most people using spacers with oem ET, to keep better look !


"standard are 8.5J ET43" - aaa you ment 19"!

Yep, got it. I have oem et with 18" and rear has 15mm spacers(summer and winter), for better look i should have 10mm in front and 20 rear(around), with this in mind et 34 will fit nicely. Many people in audizine using a5 wheels, which have i belive et32(19") no issues, but its up to you, go with oem A4 et or not, i hope you got idea now!

I am slowly getting an idea, very slowly. If anyone reading this has a cheap set of A4/ A5 alloys at 17" I would be interested as long as the price is right.

Cheers

ok thats for that I will have a think the ones I was thinking with the local guy were only 200 but with the ET34 issue. I will keep them in mind though gunnark100. Was funny I was typing the above just as you posted at exactly the same time.

Ah it turns out the seller was wrong with the size so if anyone wants a cheap set of Audi alloys with very good winter tyres on it with the smaller bore here you go. The seller is called Anne.
