    What wheels for my 8L?

    Hey guys! I just bought myself a new car! It's an Audi A3 2002 model. But the rims are really boring and I want to upgrade the look. But I don't know what rims I want. Can you guys give me some advice of what kind of rims would be nice for my ride? I want 18 inches 20130701_211727.jpg

    Here's a pic of my car. Any good Ideas? I'm not loaded with money, so would be nice to get some in the mid price range or something

    If you're looking to upgrade but keep it budget, might be better off going for 17's. Not only are the wheels generally cheaper, tyre prices are what make a big difference... TT Comps and S3 wheels are 17".

    But 18's do look good and they're what I run.

    To me, 17" is to little. I want as little rubber as possible, but still have a comfortable ride. I think 18" or even 19" would be nice.

    Ive seen a silver 8L with Golf R reps (similar to the rs6 gen2)

    Looks very good and mind youbit was sitting on 19s and also sitting very low.

    Bigger wheels don't give you a more comfortable ride. Less tyre = less sidewall flex = harsher ride. 18's won't give you more comfort or handling. It's purely aesthetic and costs more...

    I went for 18's because they fill the arches better, but in the OP it seemed like cost was important.

    I know the bigger you get the harsher the ride gets. Personally I think 18's are perfect, even if the ride is mor uncomfortable.
