RS4 wheels on a RS5

Post by MikaelBrutale » Tue Sep 15, 2015 7:26 pm

Hi!

I have sold my B7 RS4 (loved it, but time was right) and just picked up my 2012 RS5 :bigblink:
In Denmark where I live, its a good idea to use winther wheels/rubbers and I have a set (19inch) i used for the RS4 - but will they fit the RS5?

Advice is much appreciated.

Best
Mikael

The B7 RS4 wheels have a centre bore of 57.1mm but the RS5 has 66.6mm. So you can use RS5 wheels on a B7 why using a spigot to reduce the size but you can't use B7 wheels on an RS5 as the centre bore will be too small.
However, I'd be surprised if you can't buy the same design wheel with a 66.6 centre bore; maybe not with the same deep style but some flatter ones.

Nice 3 year old thread revival!

Sorry, can't help though; I don't know anything about the ceramics brakes or those wheels.
