    Will my 17"x10" wheels fit

    Hey every one,
    I have a 1999 Audi A3 1.9TDI Sport, I have remaped it my self to around 150bhp, Ive had a full JOM Coilover kit fitted and a full Stainless Steel Milltek exhaust fitted and the windows tinted all around untill yesterday when I got pulled by the cops and told to remove the tint from the front.
    The question I now need to ask every body is that I have also bought my self a set of Dare Alloy Wheels 8.5"x17" for the front and 10"x17" for the rear all with ET30.
    But I'm now having second thoughts as to whether they will fit, I realy need to know for sure before I fit any tyres plus I'm not sure what size of tyre to fit.
    Thanks for any advice and help

    The fronts should be good but i think the backs may not fit mate, 10" is a little big.

    Bugger, I have heard that people have fitted 10" on the backs with a ET28 on Golfs and Audi A3's so to be safe I bought 10" with a ET30.

    But their is just something in the back of my niggling away and putting dought in my mind.

    Some say they will and some they wont, i just had a phone call from some one who says he has 10" ET28's on his.

    Hi, have gone ahead and fitted the tyres, 215x45x17 on the front and 225x45x17 on the rear.
    The car is now at Auto Volk in Chorley having a few tweeks to make them fit.
    The fronts will need spacers as they fowl the brake calipers, the coilovers will need adjusting so nothing catches and they are going to fit a JOM strut brace.
    I will put picks on her when all finished
