Default Cheap?

We are in Bulgaria, and here they insist on Winter tyres- in Winter.
I have a FL D2 S8, on the six spoke 18" standard rims.

Yesterday I saw a set of 4 18" pukka Audi rims, I think eight or 10 spoke. I've seen them on D3 cars I think- and they look like the rims on the final edition, but they are not 20s. They ought to do me for Winters, if they fit. Came off an A6.

Guy wants 200 Euro.

Whaddya thunk?

Do you know the ET for the rims? They will probably fit but may need spacers.

Standard 18" Avus rims on the D2 are 8Jx18 ET48 5/112 stud pattern

If the winter wheels you're looking at came off a C6 A6 then they should be marked 4E0 601 025AB somewhere on the wheel. If so, they are also 8Jx18 ET43 5/112

The winter wheels will stick out 5mm more than the summer ones, which will be fine.

I don't believe there's any difference in the centre bore dimensions for seating the wheel on the hub. Be warned there's loads of fake 18" rims around, so do make sure they're marked with Audi and have a part number

I had 9 spoke 18" rims on my S8 as winters initially from about 2009 till 2012. They were replicas - though I think it was only Ian/IT who spotted they weren't kosher 20s - and I'm not sure they cost me much more than that. Those ones were fine, but maybe I was lucky...
