    Recommended Size for Winter Wheels on S3

    Does anybody run winter wheels and tyres on their S3 (in the winter!)? Will a 16" wheel fit?

    Cheers

    16's fit yes.

    A3 Sport wheels are great because they are cheap, and oem+ = win.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Its all about the tyres tbh.... winter tyres are available for 18's... I have mud and snow tyres on my avus's and they are still 225/45/17's but urinate from a great height on anything in the snow...

    Expense on tires!

    Budget hard as rock 16's are a LOT cheaper and are pretty good in the snow anyway.
