18" x 8.5", +32 Offset, 5x112 Bolt Pattern, 72mm Hub
Those will fit. You will have to get hub rings though as the hub bore on those wheels are too large.

How do you know the hub bore of a wheel?

The wheel information (Diameter, width, offset, hub bore, backspacing, finish, and bolt pattern) is typically available for every wheel on the market.
He posted the hub bore of the one he wanted above.
Now figuring out the hub size of an actually vehicle is more tricky. You have to use either an online application, or pull the wheel and measure the hub on the car.

This is why I am hesitant on ordering wheels for my S5. Cause I am sure I will miss something and end up with a problem.

I don't like the slanting sidewall "stretched" look either, but 9.5's were recommended for the 265's. Looks like Nitto recommends 9.5 for 275's as well. Guess that's decided.....
I am thinking about doing 275/30/20 setup but want to be sure I don't end up bottoming out (the sidewall will be incrementally taller on the 275, but don't think it should matter).

Do you have any issues with clearing the wheel well?

I don't have my car yet to tell you for sure, but INCINER8 and I believe Quattrings are both running that size tire on 20x10's.

Thanks. I'm planning to run it on 9.5s. I am OCD about bulging lol

I hear ya man. I am planning on 9.5s as well. Just in the slight chance(Haha, not cool...) I screw up and rub a curb, I'd much rather it make contact with rubber than my expensive wheel!

yep. We have very aggressive curbs here in Seattle lol. And I like the look of a very straight sidewall too. More aggressive

Give me your opinion.


I just talked to a wheel rep regarding the Vossen cv3r. He tells me I can go with a 20x9 or a 20x10.5 to clear the calipers. I don't know which one to go with. I don't want the tire/wheel to poke out past the fender Although I want it as close as possible to the fender without spacers or dialing in negative wheel camber. Oh and I don't want a stretched out tire.
What are your thoughts or experiences?
