    S3 8L wheels recomendations

    I am wanting to upgrade the alloys on my 2001 S3, what would you guys recomend as a good balance between, Lightness, Looks and Easy to maintain. I want 18s but is there a difference in handling between 8in wide and 8.5in? Budget is 1000 - 1500
    What is the correct offset i need? Thanks........

    Depends on what look your going for....8.5 inch's are your best bet. Maybe some LM or CH's?....Or even some second hand MTM wheels
