    Will they fit on an a3 at standard height? or would you have any better suggestions on what to get prefrably under 700?

    Cheers

    Not with that offset or PCD... you should be looking for a PCD of 5x100 and offset of ET35... those are 5x112 and ET42

    Dunno tbh... My ET33 RSTT wheels hit, my original 17" Avus's that are ET32 looked like they may clear by millimeters but I still wouldn't fit them without at least a 5mm spacer..

    The differences here though are more wheel design than offset... smaller offset should space the wheel out but would also depend on wheel width as to if it would fit under the arch... this may help...

    Not sure if you can get aftermarket wheels with an ET of less than 35... not seen any personally...

    I posted a link to cheap spacers in my build thread... ESP Engineering IIRC...

    Ill have a look into it, i just didnt want to add spacers, i know the unsprung weight will be minimal but still want to keep it to the minimum.
