    Those look like Mk1 TT alloys. I'm not sure of their offset, but, as I say, 205/50/16 is a commonly used tyre size that is known to give no issues...

    Hi Birchall. Was wondering if you would like to buy a set of alloys from me. I have sold my A2 and think you would benefit from them more than me. Not asking for a lot. 60. Let me know what you think. Munaf

    Hi. I'm going to fit a set of 18" wheels to my sons A2 and noticed you have done the same. I wondered if you could help me out. They are the RS4 wheels (multifit replicas I think) ET 35 and was wondering about tyres and would I need to fit some spacer shims etc. Tyres I was going to go for 215-35-18s and 10mm spacers. Any advice would be very much appreciated. This is my first posting since joining so it's all very new to me.

    Just need to make sure the car is safe for use as its my sons car. Cheers Chris
