V8 Mono block alloys will they fit 1995 S4

Recommended Posts

Has anyone put the V8 Monos on a S4.

If so will they hit the wheel arches?

Need to know as looking at purchasing a set for my car this week, and need to know if I will be facing body shop charges to modify the arches?

Yes, some V8 wheels scrub slightly on full lock but oher than that, no problems.

Yes, they will rub the rear of the front wheel arch, but it won't be bad. After a while, they'll stop rubbing as the material wears away. The easiest solution would be to put lower profile front tires on them, but I haven't found anybody who has tried this yet.

I believe that rubbing wheel on arches is an MOT failure so bear that in mind.

Hmm,

when I had my original Eagles on the S4 std wheels, with the 20mm wheel spacers, they did scrub on full lock. Now with the next gen Eagle F1 same size, they do not scrub anymore... :smoke:
