    I like the size! The shot from the back looks great.

    I really do not like the actual wheels though

    I believe 19 should be the biggest size? 18' r not optimal size, I agree

    Mod bug is keep biting me in the ass, so it seems we are gonna make a rim change after my facelift!

    If the et was 40 or 45, I was going to buy these babies.. It would only cost 160 GBP over my current rim+tyre set.. Was a good deal though..

    But with the narrower tyres, I would not have any pretection ?

    Tucked İs Not The Thing I Prefer, Its Supposed To Be ''Stanced'' And Fılled The Fenders Ftw )

    you need thinner tyres to run 20s, 245 is too wide for the A3

    yes you should go back to 19s as they are more practical. I also dont like the tucked look, should just fill the arches properly
