    What Tyres for 18"

    Hey at the moment i have audi a3 1.9 tdi with the standard 17" wheels on.

    i am looking into to new rims, but cant afford insurance to lower the car
    if i got 18"s would it look daft? and what would be the best tyre fitment for it so the car will sit abit lower.

    thanks

    I think it would look daft, my car is a SE when i put 18" on and never lowered it was a mini 4x4. And use to do my heading lol! 18" look fine on an s-line with standard suspension. But a SE or Sport i think they need to be lowered to pull it off. Other wise just stay with 17". As Lee said 225/40/18 will be fine.
    Here two photos of my car on 18" with standard supsension
