    Those are nice wheels but Im not sure how they will look on an A3.. they remind me of the Hartge or Alpina wheels for beemers..not a fan of chrome wheels either.. if i were you I would go for 18s as they look better than 17s but ride/performance can be effected. I think about 50mm would be the max for lowering

    Not a huge fan of those wheels, they are not symetrical enough for me, I like ones with straight square spokes like bbs. I find they fit into the look of the car easier.





    See what I mean?

    As for lowering, my audi is lowered 50mm on 17" wheels, and it just isnt enough, the car looks good but still has an arch gap, im gonna get some 18"s when ive got the money.
