    Pics of a 10"x18" wheel on the back of my S3

    Thinking about fitting a set of porsche replica wheels, Offset is very high so spacers are no problem. But car the car physically take a 10" wide rim??

    Re: will 10\"x18\" wheel fit on the back of an S3??

    My friend has 9,5" rims in back and there is much space with those. So i dont think that there are any problems with 10".

    Why would you do that?
    You'll kill the limited handling it has...

    I think 255 section tyres is optimum on an 9.5" wide rim, maybe 265 for 10"?

    That looks mad with the 10" wide wheel.

    man, they look way too big. 8's with spacers has to be the way to go.

    if ya tight. 10x18 with a 255/30/18 is the perfect wheel size for an S3 rear arch.
