    you need pcd 100x5, this one looks like it may have both as it looks like a multifit replica

    Although the seller has wrote a pcd of 5x112 the wheels are double drilled so i would suspect that they would also fit your 5x100 A3, the offset is a little on the high side so you would need 10mm spacer

    I hope you realise the auction is for just one wheel, and not a set.

    On standard suspension, it would be firm, but not harsh. Also take into consideration, a set of decent tyres could make the ride smoother also, budget tyres are usually made of a harder compound and effects the ride from my experience.

    they are five stud so all good there but if i were you i would email to double check the pcd

    19 x 9 inch rims will fit, you will need a pretty hefty spacer and you wont be able to lower the car on these rims (i had the same size) as you will rub on full lock on the front

    those wheels in the second link will fit. you can see from the pics that the bolt holes are very close to the centre spigot, meaning they are definately 5x100

    19x9 however is pretty HUGE, and will give an even harsher ride. I'd avoid

    thanks for the advice guy its all helpful
    i think 17" will be to small and 19" to big so it a nice set of 18" rs4's.

    yer mate 18" rims ftw

    as prawn said they are big and give a harsh ride even on std suspension, lots of road noise from tyres too

    Although the ad says 9x19, the close up image of the centre says 8x18.

    Also, the ones in the picture are genuine Audi TT wheels, so potentially a good buy.

    Id personally lower it and go for 17's. Even 18's are pretty rough. Get some sweet TT comps
