Default Back to square one

This is so frustrating!!! The wheels I ordered of eBay do not fit!!!!! 😡 The seller assured me many times they would. He had a client in New York that fit the same wheel to his SQ5. The wheel spec is 20x9 5x112 66.56 bore and 35 offset. Waiting on the return labels they wanted me to pick up the shipping both ways and 30% restock fee. I said HELL NO! You guaranteed this wheel to fit
It will be your dime not mine. I paid through PayPal with my AMEX so I don't see it being a issue if things get dirty. Now I need help finding a 20 inch wheel that will work. I really don't want spacers. I have looked into used oem wheels from audi parts. I might have to go that way.

Shocked that they don't fit. I have a set of OEM peelers headed my way, which are 20" x 8.5" ET33. Others seem to be running this config without issues.

It seems odd that a 1/2" larger wheel with a very slight adjustment in offset would make that much of a difference.

Default Remind us which wheels these were...

Were they the OE D4 (A8), or something else, or non-Audi OE? Trying to remember prior post history on your journey.

The offset if 35 and the other 1/2 is about 8mm total according to a wheel calculator I used

I'm sorry to hear that

But there is something wrong with rims ,according this they should fit because they have more space than OEM wheels

Those should fit according to all specs. Your picture above doesn't help show where the wheel is contacting the brakes (I assume). Where is the issue?
