    19\" A8 Wheels

    Hi All,

    Just joined the forum, and have just this weekend gone picked up my new Audi S3.. So much fun!!

    What i wanted to ask is if anyone knows if the new A8 19" wheels will go striaght on to an S3 without having to do any major wheel arch modes etc.. I know you can get aftermarket replica's in in 17" or 18" but i rather have the 19"..

    Thanks

    Pal

    Well, the bolt pattern is 5/100 on the A3/S3 but 5/112 on the A8 som there is a problem I'm afraid.

    You can get 19" replica A8 alloys with tyres for 995.

    I looked in the elite direct mag, and they start from 995 plus the tyres i think!!

    I saw them in the Elite magazine. Tyre deal for 995 - not sure what sort of tyres you get with them though.

    My local performance accessory shop quoted my 1k for 19" A8 with 235/35/19 Toyo Proxes.

    would these fit on a Audi A3 98?? If not the 19's perhaps the 18's without much modding?

    19" wheels fit an A3/S3 with no problems - no rubbing.

    They will fit as long as the fitment is PCD 5x100, et 35.

    They do look nice, but the polished finish is a bit too bling for me!

    Hmmm I might have to go for 18"... Tyres are alot cheaper.. Plus from reading other posts 18" seem the best one to go for..

    I don't know what is is, but the A8 alloys just don't look right on the A3/S3 IMO.
