    A3 wheels what can you get away with..

    hi guys im currently using audi s3 wheels on my A3 and want a change soon A> because i want something different and B. because they weigh the same as a ocean liner carrying camels gold and spices



    options i am thinking


    rota force..17x8 224 45 17 et35/48

    xxr 527 17x8.25 225 45 17 but et is 25

    could go for a 235 later in tyre history on either rim i like bulge no stretch thankyou


    anyone have an idea of other whees on the market in similar sizes...

    im finding it hard to find decent wheel choices in these sizes

    17x8 Rota Force in ET35 for me mate, with 225/45/17's:





    And to give you an idea, these are 235/45/17's, also on a 17x8 et35 rim:

    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.
