    16 inch steel rims on Black Edition?

    Hi
    Does anyone know if you can put 16inch 205 on A3 Black edition, sportback 2.0TDI - normally has 18 inch wheels on with 225.

    Need some for winter tyres abroad!

    140 or 170?

    They are 'regular' size and should be fine. The golf GTI came with 16's as standard and had 312mm brakes (same as a 170 tdi).

    Any chance of a pic? I'm not sure whether I'd ever do it (steelies on my A3 would probably upset me too much) but I'd like to have a frame of reference.

    Holy thread resurrection Batman!

    Although the horrid weather is coming to an end, the sheer awfulness of my A3 in the snow has once again prompted me to wonder whether it's worth investing in a set of steelies and winter tyres for the next time.

    Question I have is what type of 16" steel wheel do I need? Obviously the bold/stud pattern has to be right for the A3 but presumably also the right offset so they don't stick out too far yet clear the calipers etc.

    Ive got vag steelies with bridgestone all weather tyres on for sale. They where fitted to my 2011 A3 140 black edition. Reason for selling I've fitted S3 brakes so don't think they will fit now.

    sorry guys if this is in the wrong section I'm on with sorting a classified post out.
