I'd like to get some cheap 16" OEM wheels for use in the winter. Would these fit on the W8? From what I've read, stock on this car is 5x112, 35mm offset, 321mm rotor.

Thinking wheels like these or these would fit the bill. Thoughts?

I have 16" VW wheels on my W8 for winter. I don't know about the Audis.

My winter rims are these.....



But they are not OEM. I think I paid $88 each plus shipping from tire-rack.

nukefission, I can tell you that the second set (7 spoke audi) will not work. I have a set of these and just tried today to put them on. They are not square enough inside and rub the outside of the caliper.

I'm looking for 16"ers for snow tires as well. Ideally, I'd have a set for daily driving too. The roads here in WV are tough on low profile wheels. I'd like to put the 17s on the shelf.
