    Im trying to sell some wheels and I can't determine if they will fit this guys car right.

    http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Whee...ttro&autoYear=2007&autoModClar=S-Line+Package

    Those are the wheels 18x8

    ET35 is stamped in the wheel so im assuming 35 is the offset

    Trying to figure the bolt patter out but inside the wheel it list 3. 5x100, 5x108, 5x110.

    This guy that might be buying these has an 2007 Audi A3 and he thinks it needs 5x112.5.

    They fit fine on a 2007 S6.. any reason to believe they wont fit his car?

    If they fit on a 2007 S6 then they are definitely 5x112, which means they'll fit on his A3 as well. 100% for sure

    Ok, any reason they would list those 3 bolt patterns inside the wheel and not 5x112? They are made in China.. lol

    I can't think of any reason why.. Did you put these wheels on yourself or did somebody else do it before you? It is possible they used wobble bolts (slightly offset to match other bolt patterns..)

    My friend is a writer for Autoweek magazine and got these wheels from them. They were bought for and used on an Audi. Doubt they would buy the wrong wheels and then put wobble bolts in.

    Buyer is starting to flake out now.. asking me what tire size he needs and then trying to lowball me now.. fing craigslist!

    A3 bolt pattern is 5x112.

    Stock 18x8 wheels on my GTI (same as A3) are ET50, so ET35 will stick out 15mm more, should be fine...

    Tire size he needs are 225/40R18.
