    18\" New A8 Di-Cut what do these look like on S3

    right i need 4 new tyres desperatley and tonight i hit a curb cause i drifted across the road due to grip. Really sharded up the two wheels on the near side. So the tracking is now out too.

    I was looking at Rochford tyres, they have a full package on these alloys. does anyone have any pictures of what there look like on the S3.

    Deal as follows

    -------
    4 * Brand New 8x18" A8 Style Alloy Wheels. Fitted with Brand New Premium Performance 225/40/18 Tyres. Fitments available 5x100 et35, 5x112 et35, 5x112 et45. Price includes bolts, caps & badges.

    -------

    Does anyone have any idea of what these tyres are? what brand? I know a few of you guys have gone down this route. Do they use cheap budget tyres? Or can you upgrade them to a better tyre for slightly more money.

    Also i dont want to put 19's on the car.

    Need some speedy advice, i got the canvas showing on both the rear tyres and the fronts are bald too. Plus i still need the bloody service.

    You can upgrade them. A lot of people on here seem to like Goodyear F1s.

    Wheels are a personal thing im affraid, and i personally don't think the A8 wheels suit the S3. I think the RS4's and 6's look best on the S3 but they are now very common.

    I also like the S4 Avus wheel in 18" with the 5 X 100 stud pattern as it looks very similar to the original S3 avus but bigger!

    Ive always had the Michelins, dont fancy having to get used to a new tyre, I know where i stand with the trusty michelins, i once swapped tyre make and had them taken back off 2 days later. Not sure if im getting a good deal 115 each + VAt. but they have them in stock and i need them desperatly.

    115 each sounds okay to me.

    @ ImolaS3

    I think they would look great in 18" on an S3!

    Ditto! I'm no fan of the plugholes on an A3/S3 either.

    Is it me, or is there something not quite right with those Avus reps on that Autoalloyz site? The indentations look too big and the centre cap looks odd. Maybe it's just my age/eyesight....

    The 18" S4 Avus is different to the 17" Avus on an S3.

    here is an S4 Avus wheel from VAG Parts
