    A8 20" alloys

    Someone is selling 20" inch A8 alloys. Original audi wheels from a A8 Sport Quattro. They are 9J wide with a 46 offset, Decent condition with minimal marks, could do with new centre caps (£15 on e-bay).

    So would these fit and how much are they worth without tyres ?

    I hope these are different to NHN

    Or does anybody else want them if i dont

    215/35 will rub like fook!!!! Nath is running 215/30 on his but personally i think running them on an s3 is a waist cos your handling will go out the window

    all you need to do to stop rubbing is take the screws out of the arch lining! im running 9j 215 r35 with et 29 on the rear and et40 on the front, have no rubbing at all

    Yeah just had a look. Cracking job. If you don't mind me asking roughly how much did you have to pay for the arches?

    They will totally ruin your steering,ride and handling. You should only go big if your going forged, heavy rims on an S3 are pointless IMO.
    You might also have problems with rubbing unless your arches are rolled unless you run a big stretch, and you'll need to be slammed to pull it off!

    cheers mate, was about 300 quid, that was a huge amount of archwork, forcing some camber on the rear, and working on the coilovers, removing the helpers and ajusters etc....

    still about 5mm left to go with some more work, but im going to leave it untill i get bored of it at this height
