    A3 or S3?

    Offset of the Porsche wheels?

    Only with the offset can you guess if it'll fit or not...and although they may fit an S3...they are going to be a struggle on an A3 without arch work.

    If the offset is the same (which is doubtful) they'll fit fine on A3 or S3.
    8.5" is normal for the A3/S3 so isnt any problem whatsoever unless you have seriously lowered your car in which case the fronts 'may' rub, but again this all depends on offset.

    If all 4 are 8.5" then thats two sets of Porsche fronts, last I saw on eBay were ET44, but with the hub adaptors that will give you 10mm ish, so would bring you to ET34, and ET32 is the standard Audi wheel size so they'd be fine.

    You NEED to know the offset and the extra mm the adaptors will add.

    If they are just Porsche reps then as long as they are 5x100 shouldnt be an issue.
