Default Will a 2016 a4 rim fit a 2016 a3?

Hey everyone, my wife blasted a pothole the other night and bent her rim a little as well as blew out her tire. I found an 2016 a4 rim that has the exact same specs except for the offset. This rim has a 47mm offset while the a3 has a 46mm. Is it a big deal if I throw this on with the other 3 being 46mm? Thanks in advance.

I think 1 mm will be hardly noticeable (if at all unless you got some hawk eyes). As long as you have the exact same tire, size, thread, etc. even with Quattro I don't think it will matter since it's more important to match individual tire speed/rotation versus offset. Obviously you could influence handling and suspension parts but we are talking about 1mm.

Personally i would probably just get a new set and call it a day but I honestly don't see a major issue with what you are trying to do. Just don't go over 3mm offset difference. I read that anything at 4 and over will cause issues on any car (handling, suspension parts longevity, safety, etc).

Obviously I have never tested this and I have not read up on any studies so only my opinion over here.
