    RS Compatible 18" wheels thread

    Since a lot of members here started driving (and modifying) their RS, it would be useful to share information about aftermarket 18" wheels that fit to RS.
    If you successfully fit yours, please share your rim information.
    Or, if you want to know the figment of particular rim, put the make/name here.
    Let the wheel rolling!

    I think I remember seeing that a ST compatible rim will not fit the RS. Is this correct?

    And why would that be? If it has the proper offset and bolt pattern it should fit. The Nurburgring wheel was built to house large calipers. So really as long as the calipers fit then it will be fine.

    @Scoobasteve brought CAD drawing of OEM 18" ST rims and they do fit on RS.

    How about we don't speculate, and just wait for people to start trying out rims?

    There is a slight offset difference so I would wait for a test fit but I can't imagine 5mm is enough of a difference. I had 18 x 8.5 +45mm on my ST and they were perfect.
