Does anyone know if the 17" 6 spoke Audi TT wheels will fit on an R32?

I'm looking for a set of wheels while I get mine refurbished and to use over the winter months.

Will they clear the front calipers? I know theres enough room to get a brush underneeth to clean the inside... apart from the the stud pattern and offsets are the same so yes they should fit!

If they did would they not have had a spare instead of the repair kit? I am not so sure it will fit mate.

The only reason the R doesn't have a spare is because there is no room in the boot because of the space that the exhaust take underneath. The R has a shallower boot than any other Golf...even the V6 4Motion

They could have made a slim space saver though couldnt they? I am dreading the day I have to use that kit.

andymac I saw the V6 alloys, but as they are 16" they wont fit - the R32 calipers are too big!

I know the stud pattern is the same, it's the offset I'm worried about as I don't want to hit the front calipers!

Tom, some R32 drivers have purchased the space saver for the TT as it fits in the boot. The Golf Anni comes with a full size metal wheel, I think they were also trying to keep the weight down in the R32?
